Police say fatal shootings not random attack

It was just before 8 p.m. Sunday when a Honda began to circle the 5400 block of Burgundy Street. Those who noticed it began to wonder if something was wrong.

On the last pass, the car stopped and a man hopped out. Without warning, he showered a house with bullets, completely disregarding all bystanders, including a number of small children playing on the porch, police and witnesses said Monday.

The car then sped away toward Andry Street.

“We’re less than 24 hours into this investigation, and we already have significant reason to believe ... that this case involves drugs and guns,” Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas said at an afternoon news conference. “We do not believe at this time this was a random attack.”

The gunfire killed 16-year-old Jasmine Anderson and 33-year-old Terrance McBride, whom police described as the intended target. The gunmen also wounded five others, including a 2-year-old boy and a 4-year-old boy.
