Four men were killed in one shooting and a fifth was gunned down in a separate incident hours later, the latest round of killings as the city struggles to rein in drug- and gang-related violence that has accompanied the recovery from Hurricane Katrina, police said Saturday. So far this year there have been 77 murders in New Orleans, still far fewer than normal in a city accustomed to violence, but enough to cause residents to fear a return to the days when New Orleans was the murder capital of the United States. People who "live the life" of drugs and violence were taking their toll on the rest of the residents, Chief Warren Riley acknowledged Saturday.
