    Gunman rode with brothers in car
    Offer of a ride proved fatal to two teenagers
    Saturday, February 17, 2007
    By Brendan McCarthy,

    They were decent students, well-known and well-respected at school and in their neighborhood, just 16 and 17 years old.

    On a near-freezing night, while crowds across the city were begging for beads, the two brothers and a pal gave a man -- a friend, they thought -- a ride to the 9th Ward that proved fatal.

    Brothers Damon Brooks, 16, and Ivan Brooks, 17, both of Treme, were identified Friday as the victims in a Thursday night shooting that, along with the shooting of six people in a Mid-City nightclub, served as a grim precursor to the city's biggest Carnival weekend. The brothers, both students at Joseph S. Clark High School, and their 19-year-old pal were found in a parked car in the middle of the 1000 block of Kentucky Street, a well-populated residential area.

    A warrant was issued late Friday for the arrest of the man to whom they had given a ride. Police were searching for Alfred Jones, 20, of Westwego, said police officer Sabrina Richardson, an NOPD spokeswoman. Jones is wanted on two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree murder.

    The brothers died from multiple gunshot wounds, said John Gagliano, chief investigator for the Orleans Parish coroner. They were dead at the scene, authorities said. The teens were shot at close range about 6:30 p.m. while sitting in a Chevy sedan, not far from the Industrial Canal, police said. One of them was in the rear seat; the other was in the front passenger seat, police said.

    The driver, the 19-year-old, was shot about 10 times, according to police records. He was taken to Charity Hospital Trauma Center in Elmwood in critical condition. He was listed in stable condition Friday, police said.

    The driver spoke to investigators and said that they had given the gunman a ride to the 1000 block of Kentucky Street, police sources said. When the man left the car, he turned and fired, and then he ran away.

    The brothers were popular on the 1100 block of St. Claude Street in the Treme neighborhood, where they lived with their father, Brison Colbert, 49, and their 78-year-old grandmother, Marion Colbert, who has worked for the past 30 years in the powder room at Brennan's restaurant.

    The two teenagers walked home every day from Clark High School to their grandmother's house, where they would laugh and talk with their friends on the front stoop under their grandmother's watchful eye.

    "The kids who spent time here were kids I'd known all their lives," said Marion Colbert, who also strictly enforced their manners, making sure they said "Good morning" and "Good evening" to everyone who passed by on the sidewalk.

    Wonder what the weapon was, 10 times and in stable condition 2 days later, pretty damn lucky

    how long did it take for your broken wrist to heal? :rofl:

    i think shot-to-incapacitation ratios are highly subjective....we hear stories all the time of suspects that were dropped with a single 9mm round and stories of cops shooting several rounds of .40 or .45 into a person and they still live on....i think if u shoot a perp 10 times and they are in critical condition as the aftermath they are incapacitated.

    I heard a story close to this one from a police officer, he told me they put 10 rounds in him and he was still going because he was a very 'large' man. Large as in had a lot of excess body fat.
