FILE - In this file photo image taken from video and provided May 13, 2013 by the New Orleans Police Department, a possible shooting suspect in a white shirt, bottom center, shoots into a crowd of people during a Mothers Day, Parade in New Orleans. Gunfire one bozy Mardi Gras weekend, a mass shooting at a jazz music parade and the gunshot deaths of three children in 2013 nearly overshadowed a promising statistic New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu touts as he seeks re-election Saturday: the city’s murder rate dropped last year by nearly 20 percent. Still, the violence stubbornly continues and crime is a major election issue as Landrieu seeks four more years. Though many voters say they still don’t feel safe, local pundits say Landrieu is positioned to beat two fellow Democrats, with a runoff date of March 15 if needed.
