Not Surprisingly, this story has changed to reflect that police didn’t shoot army contractors, but apparently shot “lunatics” that were shooting at the Army. This all as police are there with “shoot and kill” orders for ANYONE with a gun. Interesting.
Police shot eight people carrying guns on a New Orleans bridge Sunday, killing five or six, The Associated Press reported.
A spokesman for the Army Corps of Engineers told AP that the people shot were some of its contractors on their way to repair a canal. The contractors were walking across a bridge on their way to launch barges into Lake Pontchartrain to fix the 17th Street Canal, said John Hall, a spokesman for the Corps.
Earlier Sunday, New Orleans Deputy Police Chief W.J. Riley told the AP that police shot at eight people, killing five or six. The shootings took place on the Danziger Bridge, which spans a canal connecting Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River.
