    Tennessee man slain in parking lot of 24-hour restaurant off Interstate 10
    By Times-Picayune Staff
    April 19, 2010, 8:56PM
    A 25-year-old Tennessee man was fatally shot early Monday outside a 24-hour restaurant in eastern New Orleans.



    A gunman shot Travis Anderson on Monday shortly before 1 a.m. in the parking lot of an IHOP restaurant in the 12000 block of the I-10 Service Road, said John Gagliano, chief investigator for the Orleans Parish coroner's office.

    New Orleans Police Department officers found Anderson lying in the parking lot, according to a police news release. He had been shot multiple times and died at the scene.

    Police did not release additional information, such as a possible motive or suspect.

    A man who identified himself as the store manager said in a telephone interview Monday afternoon that the victim had been eating inside the restaurant.

    Footage from the restaurant's security cameras show that a man came inside, motioned toward the victim and "called him outside," said the manager, who declined to give his full name.

    The victim followed and gunshots rang out shortly later, the manager said.

    The shooting forced employees to close the IHOP for several hours. Detectives were able to obtain the video footage of the incident.

    "There were a couple clear (security camera) shots," the manager said. "They should have a pretty good picture."

    Homicide Detective Anthony Pardo is in charge of the investigation.

    Police ask that anyone with information on the murder call Crimestoppers at 504.822.1111 or toll-free at 877.903.7867.

    If you have friends coming in from out of town to attend Jazz Fest, be sure to warn them about the crime problem.

    Pitiful!. The poor guy ate his last meal at IHOP. Not that the food is bad,it's actually good...but to go out and eat any time after 8:00 in the evening now is scary!. I feel sorry for the people traveling the interstate and stopping there,not knowing the area. Of course, they'll shoot you no matter where you are!. Sad,the poor fellow was shot. Prayers to his family and friends. Probably just passing through this place and had to lose his life. R.I.P.

    he was shot at 1:00 a.m. He was shot because he went outside. the solution: avoid bad people and bad situations.

    I agree. If the perp went inside IHOP and signaled for the guy to come outside and he followed, I would think he was a target. God bless him and his family. New Orleans has become worse than Harlem.

    New Orleans East, not one good restaurant. Not after around 1985 at least.
    I would run a flat on gold plated rims before I stoped anywhere in the east anytime after 7PM.

    Jazz Fest has been quite bloody for the past few years so why should this one be any different? If concern is based on the increase of murders we've seen in the past few months, people should think twice this year and decide if it's worth dieing for to come to this filthy deadly cesspool just to listen to a bunch of has been music groups.

    It's best to go thru New Orleans East at 70 MPH on I-10 anytime. Look at how many business owners have decided to expand in the east. What does this say about the black community? They should be ashamed

    Sad state of affairs. That's why we should be allowed to be armed anywhere in the Country, at least you'd be able to defend yourself.

    "New Orleans has become worse than Harlem."

    This commenter must not have been to Harlem since the 60s if ever.
    Harlem is completely gentrified...Heck Bill Clinton keeps a working office and PT residence there and has since leaving office in '01.
    As well NOLA has been a high crime place since the Civil War.

    Nothing different here pre-or post Katrina but the date on the news article.

    I was in East Harlem back in the late 80's, and our van was almost surrounded by a large group of skinheads with chains and bats at a red light. We ended up running the light and figured we'd deal with a ticket if we had to.

    I've been back through recently, and it is really cleaned up. No more piles of trash as tall as a house in vacant lots. No more roaming gangs of violent skinheads.

    But back to the article. I think the victim must have known the person. Why else would they get up from a meal and go outside with someone that just showed up and summoned them?

    Breaking News, Orleans Parish Crime
    New Orleans police arrest suspects in IHOP murder and unrelated drive-by shooting
    By Ramon Antonio Vargas, The Times-Picayune
    April 20, 2010, 1:10PM

    Sheena Edwards
    New Orleans Police Department investigators on Monday arrested suspects in an early-morning slaying outside a 24-hour restaurant and in an unrelated shooting several hours later where the St. Roch and 7th Ward neighborhoods meet.
    Sheena Edwards, 25, was jailed with one count of second-degree murder for allegedly helping her boyfriend gun down 25-year-old Travis Anderson in the parking lot of an IHOP in the 12000 block of the I-10 Service Road in eastern New Orleans, according to Orleans Parish Criminal District Court records.
    Detectives later booked Joseph Norah, 29, and Sean Watts, 24, with attempted second-degree murder in connection to a drive-by shooting near the corner of Elysian Fields and North Claiborne avenues that wounded a 26-year-old man, records show.
    During separate hearings Monday, a magistrate judge set all of their bonds at $500,000. Jail records indicated they all remained in custody Tuesday.
    Anderson's murder happened about 1:15 a.m. Monday, while he was dining at the breakfast house with a friend. A man named Carl Labat, who police say dates Edwards, barged into the restaurant and began arguing with Anderson, court records show.

    Murder victim Travis Anderson
    The two men stepped outside. Anderson's friend heard several gunshots, ran to the parking lot and found the 25-year-old lying on the pavement, bleeding from several bullet wounds. The friend called 911, but Anderson died before New Orleans EMS paramedics could treat him, according to authorities.
    Investigators later learned that Labat and Edwards argued with Anderson at an eastern New Orleans men's club named Passions late Saturday night. Labat and Edwards, who investigators learned lived together in the 200 block of Sweet Pea Lane in Waggaman, allegedly threatened to murder Anderson and another person during the spat before leaving the club.

    Joseph Norah
    Early Monday, Labat and Edwards allegedly showed up at the home of Anderson's companion at Passions and hurled more death threats. Labat and Edwards reportedly waved 9 mm and Ruger .40-caliber handguns while vowing to find Anderson, according to a police report.
    Edwards and Labat left the home, and 30 minutes later, Anderson was shot dead. Several 9 mm casings surrounded his body, the police report shows.
    Detectives on Monday headed to the Waggaman home where Edwards and Labat live. They spoke to Edwards and her parents there. Edwards then voluntarily drove to NOPD headquarters in the Mid-City area of New Orleans to make a statement.
    She told her interrogators that Labat left his gun at the Waggaman house. She was jailed by Monday afternoon, the police report said.
    Labat, who drives a black Ford F-150, apparently remained at large Tuesday. Records indicated that he was not in custody.
    In the shooting at Elysian Fields and North Claiborne avenues, police allege in court documents that Norah and Watts followed the victim's car from Frenchmen Street about 4 a.m.

    Sean Watts
    Norah drove a red Monte Carlo and pulled up next to the man at a red light. Watts pulled out a gun and fired numerous bullets at the victim, striking him at least three times.
    The wounded man drove himself to LSU Interim Public Hospital to receive treatment, according to a police report. Meanwhile, Norah and Watts drove off, but an NOPD patrol car in the area spotted them.
    Officers attempted to pull the Monte Carlo over, but Norah and Watts allegedly attempted to flee. After a brief car chase, Norah and Watts reportedly bailed out of the Monte Carlo in the 1600 block of Gov. Nicholls Street and ran to the third floor of a nearby apartment building.
    They were handcuffed after a short search, the report said. The victim later identified Norah and Watts as his attackers, and investigators jailed them.
    Anyone with information in either incident is asked to call Crimestoppers at 504.822.1111 or 877.903.7867. Callers do not have to leave their name or testify and can earn up to $2,500 for tips leading to indictments.

    These people are crazy.. They don't seem to think past one hour or so. Don't they think that there is a chance that people will identify them and call the authorities?

    Silly girl. 25 years old. If you go to sojmeone's house and your friend is waving a gun around, you don't join him in seeking to find the person at whom he was waving the gun.

    Some people nust need to let things go. So what if he insulted your girl or talked about your mother or father or won't give you your $ 50 !?
