Unconfirmed reports of a fatal shooting on Valence Street this evening about a block from the shanty. Corner of Valence and S. Liberty. No further details available at this time. Very bad.
Update: I just heard on wwl that the police are on the scene of a shooting near Upperline and Magnolia – about five blocks from the murder last night – or, as I like to think of it, three blocks on the other side of the shanty.
Anybody wanna buy a piece of shit house in a bad neighborhood? I’ll throw in a free p-row.
And a little more for good measure….this is from the second district email blast….it didn’t even make the news that I know of:
“On October 27th at or about 9:35 pm, the victim left his residence in the 4900 block of S. Saratoga Street and proceeded to his girlfriend’s residence in the 2700 block of Robert Street . When the victim drove up to the location, he observed nobody was home, so he continued driving. As the victim reached the corner of Freret and Valence Street , an unknown make/model/color car pulled next to him. A single shot came from the vehicle, striking him in his cheek. The victim proceeded to drive himself to the Hospital. In speaking with officers, the victim could provide no description of the suspect or the suspect vehicle. No evidence could be located on the scene and no witnesses could be located. While the victim said that he knew of no reason why someone would shoot him, his criminal record does include a drug conviction.”
