Not a funny situation at all but I thought this comments was kinda funny.

"Hell, it's not even in the lower Garden District. Most likely though, the house is about 100 years old and made of wood. This will be resolved quickly."

Yeah, I guess nola.com/t-p originally titled the article as being in the Garden District. The T-P makes a lot of little mistakes like that when it's trying to post breaking news.

Yeah, 724 Upperline isn't Garden District.

SWAT's supposedly out there now. My uncle is the SWAT captain here. I wish the whole team well...

is this not resolved or did the news staff just get to go home for the evening? I was trying to go down Tchoupitoulas earlier and it was blocked...this explains it.

Richard Scearce, 59, reached on his home phone, said, "I'm old, fat and crippled. I'm not going out on the streets to live. Let them come get me."

Craig Tolbert, Scearce's landlord, said the 59-year-old typically paid his rent. He didn't pay it this month, for whatever reason, and "knew it was coming," Tolbert said.

Dang, he did not pay this months rent and he is being evicted already. The rental market in NOLA but be doing great. Skip the late notice and go straight for the eviction!

I hope they all get out of the situation safely. And with stories to tell the grandkids.

great. so the gunman is also safe apparently?
A little whacked in the head, but yep. He's probably going to be charged with criminal damage to property (doing any kind of damage to someone else's private property), arson (the fire itself), and aggravated assault (firing the gun into the street).
