A car plowed through two walls of a home near the intersection of Cadiz and Claiborne around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, sending the driver to the hospital but without injuring anyone else, witnesses said.
A man was fatally shot on Louisiana Avenue Parkway early Sunday morning, police said.
The man was found lying in the street with a gunshot wound to the chest about 3:20 a.m. in the 3000 block of Louisiana Avenue Parkway, the first block on the lake side of Claiborne Avenue, police said. Paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene, according to a news release from the NOPD Second District.
An armed man’s standoff with police ended with his peaceful surrender Friday morning, authorities said.
The man got into an argument with his neighbors early Friday morning, fired at least one shot and barricaded himself into an apartment on Washington Avenue near Claiborne with another woman, said Capt. Robert Bardy of the NOPD’s Sixth District. Shortly after 10:30 a.m., both surrendered and were arrested, Bardy said.
Any major changes to the Interstate 10 overpass are at least four to six years away and dependent on major studies that the city cannot currently afford to pay for – despite the potential benefits that removing the structure could bring, officials said.
The possibility of removing the Interstate 10 overpass from Claiborne Avenue will be the subject of a town-hall meeting at 6 p.m. tonight at St. Peter Claver Catholic School Hall, 1020 N. Prieur St., led by City Council members Kristin Gisleson Palmer and Susan Guidry.
The proposal to create a park known as the Lafitte Greenway from downtown to Mid-City will also be discussed.
