There Was A Giant Mass Shooting NOBODY’S Talking About, Care To Guess Why?

A day after New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and police Superintendent Michael Harrison held a press conference pleading with the public for help in catching the people behind the Bunny Friend Park shooting, the first named suspect, Joseph “Moe” Allen, 32, surrendered to police Saturday (Nov. 28).

Allen, who was identified by police Friday as one of the gunmen who left 17 people wounded in a shootout during a party at the park Nov. 22, declined to provide a statement upon turning himself in, authorities said. He will face 17 counts of attempted first-degree murder, NOPD spokesman Tyler Gamble said Friday.

Landrieu said Friday that naming Allen as a suspect was “the first shoe to drop” and that other shooters would be identified and brought to justice. “We are going to do everything we can to make sure all the other shoes drop as well,” he said.

Harrison, who asked the public to provide videos, photos, and witness accounts — anything to help police find the people responsible — warned that anyone harboring Allen would be prosecuted.

Update, 2:30 p.m.: Eleven of the 17 people injured in the Bunny Friend Park shooting Sunday are under 21 years old, and the youngest victim is a 10-year-old child, Mayor Mitch Landrieu said at a news conference Monday.

Landrieu called the shooting “domestic terrorism,” adding that one victim may never walk again.

An NOPD spokesman said two victims remain in critical condition and two guarded at University Medical.

Police Chief Michael Harrison said the shooting appears to be gang-related. The number of suspects is still unclear, he said.

Landrieu pleaded for the public to come forward with any information about the shooting. Crimestoppers’ Darlene Cusanza said she is frustrated that “we’re not getting as many calls as I would like to see.” Crimestoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information on the shooting.
