NO 5th Ward

Gunfight at 2700 Block of St. Philip St., NOLA

A man working in the neighborhood, who has lived in the 5th Ward for more than two decades, said he was terrified when one of the gunmen “ran in the yard by me.” He said he thought of sprinting away the moment he saw a weapon in the man’s hand.

But he didn’t bolt until the man turned around to exchange fire with someone shooting at him.

There were four of them, he said. Two men were shooting at two other men, “youngsters in their early 20s.”

“I ran for my life,” he said.
