Less than five minutes after two people were shot half a block from where a parade was rolling in the Central Business District on Mardi Gras (Feb. 13), a camera captured surveillance video of a teen New Orleans police have identified as Kentrell Howard, a warrant for Howard's arrest states. The video showed Howard running alongside the person police believe to be the gunman im the shooting, according to the warrant.
A little over a week since 33-year-old Aaron Anderson died of his injuries after he was shot while getting out of a car, New Orleans police named a man they believe was responsible for the Lower 9th Ward slaying. Brad Smothers, 23, is wanted on a charge of second-degree murder, NOPD said in a news release on Friday (Feb. 23). The shooting occurred about 2:30 a.m. Feb. 11 -- the Sunday before Mardi Gras -- in the 2300 block of Caffin Avenue.
A period of just over five days near the end of August marked the longest stretch of time in 2017 when no one was shot in New Orleans. Before the start of that 141-hour-and 10-minute window, at 10:30 p.m. Aug. 25, 2017, two men were shot in Gentilly. At the scene, a woman who knew one of the victims said the same man was shot in the pelvis about six months earlier at that same address, in the 2400 block of Athis Street.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
