Second Man Killed by Police in 1-Week Span Was Unarmed, Chief Says


By Shay Sokol

A man who investigators believe was unarmed was killed by a cop Wednesday in Gentilly while police were serving a drug warrant, according to NOPD. Around 5:30 p.m. yesterday in Gentilly, NOPD Narcotics task forces knocked on the door of a residence on 2651 Prentiss Avenue, declaring, “This is police. We have a search warrant.” There was no answer. According to police, the cops then broke down the door, and entered the house, which had been under surveillance for marijuana sale activity. Still no answer.
