15 Shot, 2 Dead in N.O. Halloween Shootings

WWLTV, November 1, 2011

Revelry turned into horror during New Orleans Halloween celebrations when gunfire erupted at four scenes leaving 15 people shot, two of whom died.

The first incident occurred just after midnight in the 400 block of Bourbon Street near the iconic Chris Owens nightclub when police believe two men began firing at one another, striking a total of eight people during the exchange.

As horrified people began running for cover, others in the massive crowd, oblivious to what was going on, surged to try to continue their party.

Shortly before 2 a.m., police were also responding to another shooting near Canal and Burgundy streets where two men and two women were shot–one person in that group was killed as well.

Police arrested Baltiman Malcom, 24, moments after a fatal shooting that left a 19-year-old Joshua Lewis dead and 3 others injured, according to police.

“After a foot pursuit, Malcom and another suspect was detained. The third suspect managed to escape. Officers located a gun on the scene. Apparently an argument took place at which time the man was shot several times and died at the hospital,” said a statement from the NOPD.

Around 4 a.m., a third incident later left another person wounded near North Prieur and Spain streets.

Around 5:30 a.m., in a fourth shooting, two people were shot in the 1200 block of Louisa Street, near St. Claude Avenue.

In the wake of a bloody early morning of celebrating marred by violence, Mayor Mitch Landrieu said the city is using all crime-fighting tools at its disposal to try to stem the violence.

“Young African-American males being killed by young African-American males is a tragedy,” he said.

Both Landrieu and Police Chief Ronal Serpas said most of the shootings early Tuesday morning came as police officers were within a few hundred feet of the area.

    No, Whites being killed by blacks is a tragedy.

    Blacks have been doing this now for how long? That is the way they are wired. Just keep them out of White homelands and live in their own homelands and if they don’t have enough sense or morals, then let them destroy one another.

  • Periapsis

    Oh yeah, it’s a tragedy when blacks shoot other blacks, but “social justice” when they rape, maim or murder whites in animalistic, uprovoked, savage attacks that are motivated by hatred towards whites. The silence on the part of the black community regrading black on white murders, let alone black on white violent crime marks it as an enemy of all whites. Because they do not condemn these acts, whites should assume this is because of malice and worse towards us. Just wait when whites’ hatred towards all non-whites comes to a head……..the mayor will have many more backs stacked in a mortuary because they provoked one white too many. As for blacks killing each other, cry me a river. Everytime blacks kill each other, that means that many fewer threats to my life and the lives of my loved ones.

    More blacks were killed by blacks in 2008 than were lynched in 80 years.

    It’s genetic.

    It’s even more of a tragedy when White victims are shot by blacks.

    What makes that even worse is that the Media covers up the murders, with a News black-out.

    nah. this is not really a tragedy. it’s business as usual.

    Meanwhile, young white women being raped and/or killed by the thousands annually, by young African-American males must not be mentioned.

    Implied message: Black life is more valuable than other life. Murdering white people is far less reprehensible because it is justified resistance to the racist white power structure.

We need to regulate the sale of bullets! Most states don’t allow alcohol to be sold anywhere but at a liquor store that is controlled by the government. Why not bullets, too?” Bullets aren’t the problem but Afros ARE!! I have lots of ammo but I haven’t shot anyone.

    This is one of the idiots who hasn’t yet gotten his head out of his cloaca. He posted this on the TV station website.

    The Mayor of NO stated that this violence is unnatural. This violence is perfectly natural when the Mau Mau rule the streets.

    He also stated that young African Americans killing other young African Americans is a tragedy. I suppose that we can infer that Young African Americans killing, and raping and assaulting young WHITE Americans is………….. Ningún problema.

    All the aid and all the stupid White celebrities who went there to help. What insanity.

    NOLA needs another CAT 5 Hurricane. Katrina didn’t finish the job.

    It was a total shock to me to read about african Americans being involved in such violence. Many people might say this is a win win situation, Not me of course.

    Are they running out of old whites to wallop?

    Now Cain is playing the Race Card, I wondered how long it would take?

    You know anything bad that happens to a black is Always racism isn’t it.

    Thomas Jefferson was right when he is quoted as saying THEY are unfit to live in a civilized society and it we didn’t learn that soon we would pay a horrible price. How True, How True his prediction has become.

    A nine year old black female was arrested for assault and BATTERY on her school bus driver, spitting on him and telling him she would kill him. In my mind he should have slapped this savage beast into the twilight zone but then again this is turning into non white America isn’t it?

    “Young African-American males being killed by young African-American males is a tragedy.”

    And what about White people–of all ages and sexes–being killed by African males? Don’t we count?

    Never mind; it was a rhetorical question.

    A White mom is clinging to life after fun-loving Harlem boys dropped a shopping cart four stories onto the passing woman’s head . . . just for fun.

    So what was a wealthy white real estate agent doing in Harlem?

    She was buying Halloween candy for underprivileged youngsters.

    Are we having fun yet?

    Its a black city, this is normal. Any city that surpasses 20% black is not some place anyone else should even consider living.

  • MAJ

    It’s not a city – it’s an insane asylum. The black idiots running most of the government operations in NOLA are to blame.

    It will never stop – it must only serve as a warning to stay away from blacks.

    Tragedy? Hardly.

  • CDE

    Sounds like an average day in the Chocolate City.

  • Tired of It

    Do they wonder why we do not want to live, work, or be within a fifty mile radius of blacks? Yet our traitorous government keeps giving these violent idiots section 8 vouchers to move to and destroy white areas. And blacks killing blacks is supposed to be bad news? Why?

    The only thing better would be that commie Holder pulling a Fast & Furious in the black neighborhoods.

  • WR the elder

    It’s not just that blacks can’t put a man on the moon, invent a CAT scanner, or start a semiconductor company. They can’t even do Halloween right.

    Pathetic.

  • James Elliot

    Reminds me of the time I drove by a church in Oakland, CA, hosting the funeral of a recently greased gang-banger. A crudely painted banner hung over the entrance proclaimed “Stop Black on Black violence” rather than just “Stop Black violence.”

  • the Guru

    As I have posted in the past its a cultural issue among blcks here and everywhere in the world, however, some whites are mistakenly including other non-whites into those ranks. People need to be carefull by being very specific about where the problems are.

    -5 – Young white girls are like the Eloi. They are wooed by the corrupted culture into thinking that we are all the same under the skin, blacks have natural seduction talents, and then the girls who don’t put out willingly are often raped.

    It is difficult to be at all optimistic about the future of out race as our girls are corrupted, raped, and murdered. Those corrupted then bring mulattos into the world, who also hate Whitey and use their white-DNA enhanced intelligence to commit further atrocities against the white race.

    Make no mistake, this is a genocidal war against us. We must train our daughters to recognize the blacks for what they are, or all is lost.

    black on black crime. no one cares, ok. they are doing everything in their power to stop this…well, for starters no matter the color of the victims, there is no penalty for murder – only free education, food, housing, clothing, electricity – sounds like a reward, not a penalty. i don’t think we’ll see black violence towards X decrease until the death penalty is imposed for all violent crime, INCLUDING rape.

    until then, business as usual in the ghetto and whites- you better be on your toes around these creatures.

    Yes. The questions is how many more atrocities must be committed against us before Admiral Yamamoto’s “Sleeping Giant” awakens? Will it take more Flash Mob attacks, another Knoxville, Wichita, a hundred more Eve Carsons , a hundred more Anne Pressleys, a hundred more Lauren Burks, a hundred more Amy Willards?

    If Obama loses the election then the spark may be lighted.

    Bob Grant frequently warned us that War has been declared on us but we just haven’t figured it out yet.

    If Obama loses there will be big time violence and if he wins ( which is more likely given the pathetic slate of candidates offered by the Rs) the present violence will continue unabated and unpunished by the Dept. of Injustice, then will come the backlash and when the dust clears we’ll be left with a partitioned country.

    We’re never going to be able to live with these entities. They’re too different and never will be like us nor we like them.

    I don’t condone violence but there is only so much abuse that one can tolerate.

    The real solution albeit fanciful on my part would be a repatriation to Africa program which was Marcus Garvey’s dream.

    Just consider for a moment what a quasi Paradise this society would be without them. We could walk our streets in more safety any time of day, billions of dollars could be saved by not having to fund doomed to failure social programs. We’d need fewer prisons because we would be able to convict, confine and also execute our most dangerous White “animals” ( murderers, rapists and child molesters) without the cry of “racism”. Finally our culture would go back to a more refined state instead of the harsh crudity in our entertainment and sports events. Even our young White men would be more civilized instead of emulating the crudest Blacks and perhaps more women would consider marriage and children which would perpetuate our race.

    I personally have no beef with all “non- Whites” since I think that we share a common desire not to be near Afros. Every group has it’s obnoxious element but on the whole I have no problem with East Asians whose kids are becoming quite American and most Hispanics, except for Mestizos from Mexico and Central America who, for one reason or another tend toward criminal behavior.

    The only tragedy is the millions of dollars in medical expenses that the state will ultimately be saddled with. In addition to the cost of lifetime incarceration for the guilty, the ongoing cost of policing these people, etc. All of which will ultimately fall upon the white taxpayers.

  • white is right, black is whack

    Where are the statistics that show blacks being lynched in the old days versus the amount of black on black and black on white killings today? I’m just curious and want the sources to fight the anti-white crowd when they say I can’t prove it.

  • anaonymous

    @AWG

    The boys who dropped the shopping cart on the woman’s head were Hispanic, not black. Too bad you did not take the time to find out more.
