Filming a music video. Neither the block party nor the music video organizers obtained a permit. A 10 yr old was one of the shooting victims.

Nah, it isn't a big story because of a couple of things.

1) No one died
2) Doesn't fit the narrative that furthers anyone's agenda.

A)There were MULTIPLE people firing, so it isn't like some crazed lone wolf went on a mass shooting spree. Sorry - No way to twist this into scaring middle America into relinquishing their 2nd Amendment rights.

B) This was in the 9th ward, which is notoriously bad for gang activity.
Sorry - No bad cop shooting an innocent person.

C) As far as anyone knows this was all blacks involved, the shooters, the victims, the bystanders.
Sorry - We have been shown over the last couple of years that Black Lives Matter only when it is a life taken by a white person.
