Overnight Crime Report: Unclassified Death, Cuttings, Armed Robbery, Beating


After a very violent weekend, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) only handled four crimes on Sunday (6.05) according to the Major Offense Log (MOL). The roster of wrongdoing included one unclassified death, a stabbing, an armed robbery, and a beating.


Two Killed in Friday Car Accidents


Two people were killed in separate New Orleans traffic accidents that happened minutes apart on Friday, police said. About 10 p.m., a 30-year-old woman riding a motorcycle was killed on Interstate 610. Five minutes later, a man walking on Chef Menteur Highway was killed after being hit by a car.


Cyclist Killed on Chef Menteur


A bicyclist was killed this morning, and another was injured on Chef Menteur Highway, near Venetian Isles. Around 10:15 a.m., a white Chevy Cruze rear-ended two cyclists in the right lane, eastbound.


NOPD Officer Shot on Chef Menteur Hwy.


A New Orleans police officer was shot while trying to arrest a suspect in eastern New Orleans early Thursday morning, police said. The Seventh District Task Force, whose name was not released, was shot in the ankle after a foot chase near the intersection of Chef Menteur Highway and Wilson Ave., according to NOPD.


Fiyo on the Bayou: A Marsh Fire Update


Yesterday, the marsh fire in New Orleans was but a specter of reduced air quality. Well, we thought, we have those all the time. But, depending on which way the wind was blowing, today we could smell it and the city looked like it was stuck in an art film. So, things seem to be a little more pressing. This afternoon, the mayor's office provided more details on the blaze, which is raging but "100% contained" out between Chef Menteur Highway and Bayou Sauvage Wildlife Refuge in Michoud.


Gentilly Woods Shopping Center Goin' to Wal-Mart


Thanks to the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority, there will be another place for the men of Gentilly to cruise for ladies. Wal-Mart is set to take over a blighted strip mall on Chef Menteur Highway. Residents had once voted down the really big-box chain's proposal for the site. But, they're Wal-Mart. Mr. Ghetto may need to be summoned to smooth relations. Da Paper has more about Wally World's plans.
