The Crimestoppers rewards for information in the Nov. 22 shootings at Bunny Friend Park in the Upper 9th Ward, which injured 17 people.
LATER IN THE WEEK, Mayor Mitch Landrieu and New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison expressed frustration that Crimestoppers and NOPD had gotten so few tips in the shooting, which took place at an unpermitted music video shoot at the park. "We know that there were hundreds of people out there, which means that there were hundreds of witnesses to this event," Harrison said.
The reward began at $2,500, then was raised to $5,000 and was at $6,000 at press time. Meanwhile, the combined rewards for information in a series of three Uptown restaurant robberies in August and September, in which no one was injured: $30,000.
If you have information on any of these incidents, call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
