NEW ORLEANS - Dozens of New Orleans police officers swarmed an Algiers neighborhood Monday looking for three men who fled from a traffic stop carrying an assault rifle.
The incident began shortly after 1:30 p.m. on Shepard Court, said Officer Sabrina Richardson, a spokeswoman for the New Orleans Police Department. Police were following the vehicle when the driver began to drive erratically in an attempt to flee, she said.
While officers gave chase, the driver stopped on Shirley Drive, where all three suspects fled the car. Richardson said that one of the men carried an assault rifle.
