Teen Booked in MLK Day Shooting

On Martin Luther King Day (Jan. 21), New Orleans was once again horrified by absurd violence as shots rang out on Martin Luther King Blvd. On the same afternoon that a march honoring Dr. King's legacy passed down the Central City street, five young black men were left wounded by bullets. Since then, police made one arrest, but more who were involved in the shooting may still be at large.

City Rolls Out MLK Commemoration Events Schedule

If there's a big event in New Orleans, a commission isn't far behind. And Martin Luther King Jr. Day is no exception. Mayor Mitch and the 2012 New Orleans Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Planning Commission announced event plans today for the MLK Jr. Holiday weekend, starting Thursday, January 12 and running through the holiday itself on Monday, January 16. Da Mayor was in full preacher word during the press conference. One of the members of the Planning Commission yelled “Preach it!” from the back of the stage.
