Seriously, WTF? This is really saddening to hear that people are being shot on a day when its supposed to be about celebrating mothers.
"Just a very tragic day for us again in New Orleans, especially on Mother’s Day," Mayor Mitch Landrieu told reporters Sunday evening. “We have mothers that were shot, sisters that were shot, little children that were shot."
