It’s hard to imagine a chimpier place in America than a chicken restaurant in New Apeleans.
If you’re going to go near one of those joints, at least ensure you’re wearing a bulletproof vest first.
A 37-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an early Sunday morning Bourbon Street shooting that killed one woman and injured two others, including the suspect himself.
Louis Barnes has been booked with counts of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder, New Orleans police said.
The woman killed in the shooting, police said, appeared to be an innocent bystander. She was 36. Her name hasn’t been released.
A security guard was trying to remove Barnes from Willie’s Chicken Shack, an eatery in the 400 block of Bourbon Street, when Barnes struggled with the guard, stole his gun and started shooting. A spokesman for Willie’s said the guard had told Barnes he had to leave because Barnes was trying to sell drugs inside the establishment.
The guard was shot in the neck and Barnes was hit in the shoulder during the struggle. The 36-year-old woman, who was walking down Bourbon, was apparently struck by a stray bullet as the two men struggled over the gun.
Julie Couvillon (her name was released in a separate report).
