    LA - Londyn Samuels, 1, shot to death, New Orleans, 29 Aug 2013

    This story was originally published on Fri Aug 30, 2013 11:16 AM EDT | Updated 5 hours ago

    By Tracy Connor, Staff Writer, NBC News


    A 1-year-old girl was shot dead in her babysitter's arms in New Orleans, prompting the city's mayor to declare "enough is enough" as police hunted for two suspects with little help from witnesses.

    Londyn Samuels, who was just learning to walk, was struck by a bullet fired into her 18-year-old nanny's back as she carried the toddler home from the park.

    I no longer read comments. They are generally ugly.

    What a gorgeous little girl.

    enough is enough!

    We just get finished with the Antonio Santiago trial, and now we hear about Londyn Samuels. And there are countless other children who are getting murdered or abused every day that we don't hear about. I agree with Mayor Mitch Landrieu ... ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

    Londyn's father's Instagram is DATNIGGA_KEE

    I just read through it. So heartbreaking - it's so evident he loved his baby girl and that she was the light of his life.

    So the gunmen were aiming for the babysitter? I couldn't tell if it were a stray bullet, but it seems it wasn't. I hope the babysitter can help identify them. It's ridiculous that people in the neighborhood are too scared to offer information!!

    NOPD reopens LaSalle, interviewing three in connection with death of toddler

    http://www.wwltv.com/home/NOPD-curre...221773821.html

    NEW ORLEANS, La. - The New Orleans Police Department has reopened LaSalle Street following a morning SWAT roll in the area that lasted for hours.

    Police called in a SWAT Team when they believed suspects wanted for questioning in relation to the murder of 1-year-old Londyn Samuels, may be inside of a residence, in the 2800 block of LaSalle.

    The NOPD SWAT team made contact with two adult females and one adult male inside of the home, and is currently in the process of interviewing them...........

    Serpas said they don't know if the babysitter and the baby were the target.

    More at link......

    Cruel irony:

    Londyn's mother was working at a non-profit cafe dedicated to anti-violence when the shooting happened.
    All my love and light to mom, dad, and the sitter. Good grief. RIP beautiful girl.

    Unfortunately this happens all too often in New Orleans. Since 2012, 4 children have been killed by gunfire
    http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/...incart_m-rpt-2

    One boy was shot and injured at a birthday party where a 5 year old was shot and killed (Brianna Allen) and then 2 years later, he was injured shot and injured again at a mother's day parade.

    The shooting in 2012 that killed the 5 year old girl (Brianna Allen) at a birthday party was hard for police to investigate because apparently it was an uncle at the party who was the intended target but the family refused to speak up because they wanted to handle it themselves. It was gang related. In that case "Members of another gang, the 110'ers street group, were charged earlier this year in connection with Briana's killing. The indictment blamed the gang for 15 murders."

    In another incident, Keira Holmes , just days shy of her second birthday, was playing with other children on a patch of grass at the B.W. Cooper public housing complex. Gunmen cruising the block opened fire on Emmett Allen, who was killed by gunfire in the B.W. Cooper housing complex December 18, 2011. When Allen ran into the courtyard where the children were playing, a hail of bullets followed. One struck Keira in the head and killed.

    " Earlier this year, an Orleans Parish grand jury handed down a racketeering indictment, charging 18 people with being members of the 3-N-G gang responsible for 10 killings, "including Keira's. At least one of the people charged was a teenager".

    2-year-old Jeremy Galmon, shot during a second-line parade on Sept. 26, 2010. Jeremy had been sitting in a parked car with his grandmother, while his mother watched the parade nearby at First and Dryades streets. When gunfire and chaos erupted, Jeremy peeked his head out of the car window and was struck in the cheek.
    2 men, cousins Bernell "Benny" Pollard, 24, and Jamiron Pollard, 31, now face an automatic sentence of life in prison after being found guilty in that killing.

    I taught in that neighborhood for 5 years as a public school teacher. Many of my students lived in the BW Cooper housing projects where Kiera Holmes was killed. I passed by those projects every day on the way to work.

    Gangs, murders and crime have a huge hold in New Orleans. Many people don't want to tell the police what they know, because so many of them have family involved or are doing shady things themselves or are scared of the gangs. Some just prefer just to retaliate themselves with some more shooting rather than letting the police do their jobs.

    If police try to patrol the area more to bring a police presence to try and make the neighborhood safer, then many complain that the neighborhood is being profiled. It is such a difficult thing for police to deal with and so many murders happen that they are overloaded.

    I had students who slept in the bathtub because it was the safest place in the house when bullets start flying. This is crazy!! It is sad and horrific. This is just the tip of the iceberg unfortunately.

    GUILTY!!!

    So this is a DIFFERENT case than the boy who was shot dead in his stroller as his parents pushed him down the street?
    This has happened TWICE since Antonio's killer was convicted??

    Rev. Al Sharpton challenges New Orleanians to end the violence

    NEW ORLEANS -- Rev. Al Sharpton visited New Orleans Sunday. Days after another child was shot to death in Central City and hours before two girls were shot, one fatally, in the Carrollton area early Monday, Sharpton challenged New Orleanians to do better.............

    “We must recapture the same faith and pride and dignity that gave us the strength to rebuild a city underwater,” Sharpton said. “Now we must be strong enough to build ourselves from under this whole pervasive lack of regard for human life.”...........
