Today's Events: 12.12.11
Today, we send off Coco Robicheaux with a second line and musical tribute, House of Pleasures screens at Chalmette Movies, and Strange Baby plays their first show at the Saint after a free screening of Dancehall Queen.

Saint Shooting, Solved
February 16th marked a violent crime outside the L.G.D's beloved dive, The Saint. A late night phone call outside the bar quickly turned into a run-in with two armed men on the 900 block of St. Mary; after demanding the 24 year old's mobile device, the men responded to his refusal with skin on skin attacks and open fire. With the whole scene caught on tape, a survived victim, and a Crimestoppers tip, WDSU reports that the culprits have finally been found. 19-year-old Shaquille Cooper and 20-year-old Gregg Kagler were officially arrested yesterday by NOPD, after an anonymous caller from Crimestoppers chimed in to identify/confirm these two as suspects...what a saint.
Shooting at the Saint
A man stepped outside of the Lower Garden District dive The Saint early Wednesday morning to talk on his cell phone, and ended up shot. New Orleans police said the 24-year-old man man was approached by two men around 3 a.m in the bar, located at the 900 block of St. Mary St. They attempted to hold him up and take his cell phone, but the man did not give up the device. The men skirmished, and the victim was shot after being hit several times, police said. In the end, the two men got the victim's phone.
