The city’s mayor, LaToya Cantrell, condemned the violence in a statement and vowed to “dedicate every resource necessary to ending this horror and seeing justice done.”

“I speak for everyone in our City when I say we are disgusted, we are infuriated, & we have had more than enough,” she wrote on Twitter. “Three more lives — gone. It has to end. It’s unacceptable anywhere.”

There is no place in New Orleans for this kind of violence. I speak for everyone in our City when I say we are disgusted, we are infuriated, & we have had more than enough. Three more lives — gone. It has to end. It’s unacceptable anywhere.
