A woman who lives in the area said she rushed to Napoleon’s Palace after her daughter told here there had been a shooting.

“I found out it was a friend of ours that got shot,” said Jackie Mays Atkinson. “All she said is somebody opened fire. … They don’t know who it was or why.”

The shooting happened outside the bar, and the victim went inside for help.

Atkinson said she wasn’t sure where the man was shot, and said she was headed to the hospital.

“This does not happen up in Napoleon’s,” she said. “We do not have problems like this.”
