    NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans police say 11 people were shot in an early morning shooting on the edge of the city’s famed French Quarter.

    On March 23, 2012, President Barack Obama gave a press conference in the Rose Garden. A little less than a month before, George Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighborhood watchman, had shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin after a violent encounter prosecutors said was instigated by Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. Local police had released Zimmerman after five hours of questioning, saying there was not enough evidence to refute his claim of self-defense. It was an obviously incomplete investigation, and the Martin family was demanding justice. In the weeks that had passed, journalists, especially Trymaine Lee then at The Huffington Post and Ta-Nehisi Coates at...

    The attorney who represents Trayvon Martin's family is expected to hold a news conference on what he calls a discriminatory "stand your ground" law following the shooting death of Markeis McGlockton at a Circle A Food store last week. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office and the state attorney are expected to make a decision in this stand your ground case as a memorial for McGlockton is continuing to grow outside the store where he was shot. His family held a big press conference two days ago asking prosecutors to charge the man who shot him, Michael Drejka, with murder. And...

    When teens aren’t busy having illegal Ikea sleepovers or jumping into zebra exhibits at the zoo for love, sometimes they find time to flock to the malls of New Jersey, where they kick doors and run up escalators the wrong way. As NBC-10 reports, between 700 and 1,000 teens created such a disturbance at the Cherry Hill Mall in southern New Jersey the day after Christmas. Fellow shoppers were reportedly frightened as the teens moved around nonsensically, and a few fights even broke out. “Kids [were] running up and down the escalator the wrong way, so they shut them off,...

    The gunman accused of shooting a bystander Friday told deputies he offered the victim a cup of water and $400, but did not call 911 or try and stop the bleeding.

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (KMSP) - Police say the case began with a man who was brutally beaten in the locker room of the Lifetime Fitness gym in Eden Prairie -- but charging documents claim that's far from where the violence ended. Many have wondered how Dalal Bayle Idd and Kamal Elyas Maqadin were able to get into the health club in the first place -- and the answer is simple: They walked in just like everyone else. They only difference is that they didn't stop to check in because they weren't there to work out.
