Unarmed Black Man Shot by Police, Again

NOPD Chief Ronal Serpas

On Monday and Tuesday, NOPD did not respond or fulfill repeated requests by the newspaper for information and records on the incident, which was classified as an "officer needs assistance/life in danger" call. Eventually, the wounded man's lawyer, Nandi Campbell, confirmed to NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune that her client was shot by the police, after she visited him in the hospital on Wednesday.

Armond Bennett, 26, suffered a serious but not life-threatening gunshot wound to his forehead, leaving him hospitalized for three days, Campbell said. "I hate the thought that somebody's OK with telling the citizens of New Orleans that Mr. Bennett fell through the cracks, that this incident fell through the cracks," Campbell said. "I just find that unbelievable."
