New Orleans, LA – The New Orleans Police Department will hold a benefit at “Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World”, 233 Newton Street, in Algiers, Wednesday, June 28, 2006. The event, which kicks off at 7 p.m., is to assist Police Officer Andreas Gonzales, who was seriously injured in a shooting on May 22, 2006.

Officer Gonzales was shot four times by 21-year old Eddie Harrison III, a convicted felon, during a brief struggle after Harrison fled the scene of a traffic stop involving an acquaintance, 17-year old Joshua Hall.

Currently, Officer Gonzales is undergoing intense rehabilitation at Touro Hospital. He was partially paralyzed as a result of his injuries.

There will be food, music and a silent auction. Members of the NOPD are asking citizens and the business community for gift items to be auctioned at the event. Donations are also still being accepted at any First Bank and Trust location.

    I’ve been trying to understand the police district boundaries. Anybody know a good source?

    The Second District starts at Louisiana Avenue. Washington is in the Sixth.

    You’re right Adrastos. My bad. The map clearly shows the 2nd District boundary at Louisiana.

    Thanks, the map is very helpful.
