Release: John Kennedy Statement on Bourbon Street Shooting

Baton Rouge, LA — In the wake of another violent night in New Orleans, John Kennedy released the following statement. "The violence in New Orleans is out of control. Twenty-four people have been shot in New Orleans in the last three days including the ten shot on Bourbon Street early this morning. We need to take action today to empower our law enforcement officers, not undermine them. I’m grateful to the response from law enforcement officers who were on the scene last night to help prevent even more shootings. My prayers go out to the men and women of our law enforcement agencies who put themselves in harm’s way every day."
