And the World Goes Round

I’m tired and still have work to do tonight, but I just came across this and thought I should share it:

David Bonds, the 19-year-old acquitted last month of the 2006 killing of a popular New Orleans musician, is wanted for a shooting early Sunday morning, a police spokeswoman said Monday.
Bonds got into an argument with another man at around 5:00 a.m., and as the fight escalated Bonds shot the man in the torso, according to police. The shooting victim is in critical but stable condition at a local hospital, said Officer Jonette Williams, spokeswoman for the New Orleans Police Department.

Two eyewitnesses saw the shooting, which occurred in the 700 block of Canal Street, at the corner of Canal and St. Charles Avenue, according to a police news release. Detectives have obtained an attempted murder arrest warrant for Bonds.

After an emotional trial, Bonds was acquitted in April of shooting Hot 8 Brass Band drummer Dinerral Shavers. Bonds was accused of shooting into Shavers’ car as he drove away from a heated confrontation between the musician’s stepson and a friend and other teenagers on Dumaine Street.

It just doesn’t seem to end. Comments?
