Girlfriend, suspect talk ‘hammer’ in jailhouse call

  // Wednesday, 20 August 2014 20:37 //

New Orleans police threw the book at Ashley Shorts after they heard her discussing the “hammer.”

Shorts, 25, was arrested Monday on a count of conspiracy to commit obstruction of justice after a recorded jailhouse phone call caught her and Blair Taylor, her boyfriend and one of two alleged gunmen in last week’s Lower 9th Ward mass shooting, discussing what happened to the “hammer” — street slang for a gun — that was used in that incident.

According to court documents, the conversation happened about 1:40 p.m. Aug. 14, the same day Taylor, 23, was arrested and booked on two counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted first-degree murder.

“Is the hammer still in the kitchen?” Taylor asked Shorts.

“No,” she replied.

“Where it at? You brought it somewhere?” Taylor asked.

“No, I ain’t had a chance,” she said.

“Where it at?” Taylor asked again.

“They got it,” Shorts said, apparently referring to police.
