In addition to a deadly shooting at a second-line, two shootings and an attempted armed burglary were reported in Uptown neighborhoods over the weekend.
On Sunday (Sept. 26), an 87-year-old woman and a 44-year-old man thwarted an armed burglary attempt in Broadmoor.
The man was sitting on the porch in the 3400 block of Louisiana Avenue Parkway at about 11:45 a.m. when a man and woman approached.
The victim went inside and the couple tried to force their way in. They then fired into the home. The man and a female resident, 87, returned fire, and the two intruders fled.
Early Saturday (Sept. 25), a 41-year-old man was injured in a shooting at Erato Street and St. Charles Avenue.
The victim was in the 1600 block of Erato at about 1:30 a.m. when he was physically attacked by another man. The assailant then pulled a gun and shot the victim in the foot. He was taken to the hospital by the Emergency Medical Service.
A shooting also occurred early Friday (Sept. 24) in Central City. The gunman approached two men in an alley in the 2600 block of Fourth Street at about 1:20 a.m., demanding their property.
He struck one of the victims with his gun and shot the other man before fleeing.
