Shooting on the Point

Before I even start this post, you need to know that the residents on the Point who were involved are all okay. Repeat: they are okay.

They've just had a shooting incident on Pelican.

Everybody (the residents) were sitting outside on their porches, and three 'guys' came walking down the street with a gun. Somebody opened fire (no details), and a regular firefight started. They estimate that 25 shots were fired.

Of the three 'guys', two were hit (one in the back and the other in the shoulder). All three got away.

Also - while we're on this - I'm also told there is / has been (not sure if it's now) shooting in the Convention Center and the Superdome, and they are also setting fires in the Superdome.
