17 Wounded when Gun Battle Erupts at Filming of New Orleans Rap Video

November 23, 2015  | 

Seventeen people were injured in a shooting incident at the Bunny Friend Playground in New Orleans Sunday night, according to the local police department.

A video was being filmed at the playground when shots broke out. The planning for the filming was conducted through social media and a large crowd had gathered, but police were not told of the filming in advance and said it was not permitted. Authorities did not disclose who was filming the video or whether they might be involved with the shooting, Newsweek reports.

When authorities arrived at the playground, they found numerous people shot and transported 10 to three local hospitals. The remaining victims were transported by other means, New Orleans Police Michael Harrison said during the press conference around midnight on Sunday. All of those injured are believed to have been shot. The initial injury total provided by authorities was 16, but on Monday morning reported a 17th person had been injured, citing a police spokesman.

I don't have to be a detective to know that this was probably a bunch of white rappers shooting at another bunch of white rappers because "blacklivesmatter"

Wait, don't say it...I'll bet there were minorities involved. They will probably sue NOPD for NOT stopping the shooting and again proving that black lives don't matter.
What has happened to this country, it's like all the gangs that cause 90% of the crime have just disappeared. I realize that I'm screwed in the head after 25 years of being a racist cop but no one, I mean no one will say anything about gangs being involved in all these crimes.
Brown, the riots that occurred in St. Louis county and everything else that has happened in the last year, all gang related but not a single word said about the gang connection. Is it just me, where have the gangs gone???
Must be one of the political correctness things I don't understand. Just don't get politics.

Black lives matter folks won't be outdone by no stinking terrorists. It is just not
fair that the terrorists are getting all the publicity lately. In the meantime, DOJ
devotes 90 plus percent of its resources in investigating cop shootings while gangs run amok killing wholesale, and FBI is swamped with watching potential terrorists. Since Obama, aka Alfred E Newman, thinks everything is going so well while singing don't worry, be happy , why not bring in 10,000 or more Muslim refugees since all are 3 year olds or widows. All this makes sense to
Nancy Pelosi.
