But this works out to almost one a day.
New Orleans, LA (WWL/CNN) – Four teenagers in New Orleans, not old enough to drink or drive a car, are now crime statistics in one of the country’s most violent cities.
In the last five days four teenagers, all under 15-years-old, have been shot in New Orleans.
The latest victim was a 13-year-old boy who was shot after getting off a school bus.
Police say he was caught in the crossfire of two groups firing at each other.
On Tuesday, a 14-year-old was shot in New Orleans’ Central City neighborhood.
Last Friday night, 15-year-old Brandon Adams was shot and killed, on Monday, his girlfriend, also 15, was shot and killed.
“Not old enough to drink or drive a car” (legally). As if that has any significance?
That’s the thing about the young males of Africanus Bellcurvius — Throw out the age, as long as he can walk upright and has the hand strength to pull a trigger, he can murder. And anyone can be a victim, especially if they’re caught in the middle of tribal warfare.
