Disturbing Video of Gun Shooting Toward Houses from Moving Vehicle Not Filmed in New Orleans
A shocking video capturing a shooting incident has sparked a wave of concern as it circulates widely on social media.
According to WWL-TV, the viral video of a drive-by shooting, initially shared by a popular New Orleans Instagram account, was not actually filmed in New Orleans. A viewer sent an email claiming that the incident took place in Fort Worth, Texas, and provided an address. Through a Google Earth Search, the houses visible in the video were found to match those in Fort Worth.
Eyewitness News contacted the Instagram account, "Get Your Kids NOLA," to inquire about the source of the video. They stated that a spam page sent it, claiming it was sent by her ex. The New Orleans Police Department initiated an investigation once the video gained traction online. However, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office confirmed that they had not received any reports matching the video.
Efforts were made to reach out to the Fort Worth police, but no response has been received thus far.
The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) has launched an investigation into the disturbing footage, which depicts an unidentified individual brandishing a handgun from a moving vehicle and firing indiscriminately in the direction of residential properties.
The video initially surfaced on Instagram under the account name @getyourkidsnola, subsequently spreading to another Instagram profile called @bayoumamabears. The clip quickly garnered a significant amount of attention, leaving viewers appalled and outraged.
Many individuals who watched the video expressed their belief that the person responsible for the reckless act should face charges of attempted murder for endangering the lives of those residing in the targeted homes.
The specific location where the video was filmed remains uncertain, adding to the mystery surrounding the incident. However, the NOPD is actively engaged in an ongoing investigation to identify the individuals involved and determine the precise circumstances surrounding the shooting.
In an effort to gather additional information, the authorities are urging anyone with relevant details to come forward and assist in the investigation. Those who possess any pertinent information are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers, ensuring their contribution aids in bringing the responsible parties to justice.
