Shots halt hurricane evacuation
« on: September 01, 2005, 06:32:24 AM »

The evacuation of stranded hurricane victims from New Orleans' Superdome stadium has been suspended after shots were fired at a rescue helicopter.
A spokesman for the Louisiana ambulance service told the BBC the crowd had grown unruly and he was concerned for the safety of his staff.

He said a national guard had been shot, but he had not been seriously injured.

There are widespread reports of looting in flood-stricken New Orleans. The mayor has ordered a full evacuation.

Shooting at people is a very idiotic thing to do even more so when they are trying to help you.
