Late Tuesday afternoon, police tape blocked both ends of the 4000 block of Baudin Street with crime tape. Along each stretch of tape, friends, family, and neighbors gathered to find out what happened. Initially, all they knew for sure was — a burst of gunfire shattered a quiet evening.
Within minutes, word spread that two people were shot and killed. Shocking people even more was news that an eight-year-old boy was also injured in the attack.
When Superintendent Ronal Serpas walked to speak with reporters, he was called over along the way by a crying woman who also wanted answers. He tied to comfort the woman but could offer little explanation for what happened.
