Looters Fired Upon
"Sometime after midnight, somewhere between two and three criminals, we believe they were attempting to loot those supplies, actually opened fire," Governor Bobby Jindal stated. "They fired about five or six shots at the National Guardsmen. The MPs, the military police, that were there took shelter behind their military vehicle. They returned fire with their M-16 rifles. The criminals fled."
The criminals remain at large. "I would just ask our people to continue to be vigilant about their safety," Jindal continued. Roger that.
