It hasn’t been a good weekend for New Orleans. First a good Samaritan is shot and would have been killed but for a jammed gun. Now comes reports of as many as 16 people shot at a party in a park following a local parade in the city’s ninth ward. “The scene around 7 p.m. was chaotic, with several people lying around the park’s main building and hats and possessions scattered all around the playground. Several ambulances are at the scene. New Orleans Police have cordoned off the park and blocked all streets leading to it.” If this keeps up, they’ll soon be calling New Orleans the Chicago of the South.
