TheBostonChannel.com - News - Snipers Firing On Workers Repairing Cell Phone Towers: "NEW ORLEANS -- There are reports from New Orleans of shots being fired at cell phone workers on towers trying to restore service.

Authorities have been going door to door at nearby apartment buildings, sometimes forcing doors open in their search for snipers.

Some pawn shops in the area are federally licensed gun dealers that were looted in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

The operation includes dozens of New Orleans police, Louisiana State Police, ATF and other law enforcement members. Most are wearing flak jackets.

No shots have been heard during Wednesday morning's operation and no one has been pulled out of any apartments.

Reporter Shot In Baton Rouge
A reporter for the St. Petersburg Times newspaper is carrying a reminder of his coverage of Hurricane Katrina -- a bullet.

The newspaper said Marcus Franklin was shot on Monday night by a gunman who attempted to rob him at a dimly-lit intersection."
