Maybe just a coincidence, but...: On Sunday (6.27.10)--the day major changes in the NOPD were due to take place--all hell broke out in the 8th District:
- First, there was the murder of a 28-year-old Gretna police officer around 4 a.m. in the 400 block of Bourbon Street (between Conti and St. Louis streets).
Detectives later determined that Thomas, who was off-duty at the time, and a group of friends got into an argument with a gang of unidentified men, one of whom clobbered Thomas behind the head, causing him to fall to the street.
Police have not been able to put together video surveillance photos that clearly show the suspects, who remain at large.
- Then, later in the day at 2:47 p.m., a 28-year-old Hispanic woman was brought into the emergency room at Tulane University Hospital, riddled with gunshot wounds.
He told them he had been living with her at the notorious Canal Street Hotel, 1630 Canal St.--the scene of numerous shootings and murders in the last few years--while he worked on renovations there.
When detectives went to Room 305 of the hotel where the couple were living they found what the said was evidence that the shooting had taken place there. They also learned that there had been a disturbance earlier in the room between Hernandez and his girlfriend.
Detectives charged Hernandez with domestic battery and disturbing the peace by fighting. The victim was in critical condition in the hospital and has yet to make a statement to the police. Hernandez is being held on $85,000 bond in OPP and is also being detained for immigration authorities.
Bike bandit bagged: Seems like bicycles are the vehicle of choice for pursesnatchers these days.
Finally last Saturday (6.26.10), 1st District cops arrested Horace L. Price Jr., 36, and booked him with robbery in 2 separate incidents, one on Bourbon Street last week and another just across N. Rampart Street in Treme.
Then Keller remembered a similar incident that occurred in the French Quarter and contacted 8th District Det. Jerusha Hillman.
