It’s been an especially violent holiday weekend in New Orleans. Since Friday night the count stands at 15 people shot and four others killed. WGNO News Anchor Vanessa Bolano takes a closer look at the deadly trend.

“It’s just too much violence, too much going on,” says New Orleans resident Jessica Johnson, “Everywhere you turn someone getting killed. Every time you turn on the news someone got killed and shot; for what purpose?”

Johnson tries to shield her kids from the violence, but this Memorial Day she couldn’t. A 17-year-old man was gunned down footsteps from her mother’s home near the corner of North Rocheblave and Eads streets in St. Roch. The teen made it to the hospital but died.

“The summer; it’s going to get worse,” fears Johnson.
