Man Shot and Killed in Front of Mondo This Afternoon

In a week where too many bad things happened, this is by far the worst: this afternoon, a man was fatally shot outside the front door of Susan Spicer's family-oriented Lakeview restaurant, Mondo.

WWL reports that the shooting accorded after "an argument escalated outside the restaurant." The Times-Pic quotes a bystander who heard seven gunshots and saw a truck flee the scene. The shooting reportedly occurred shortly before 3PM?Mondo serves lunch until 2:30PM and offers a snack menu between lunch and dinner, so the restaurant was open at the time. No word yet on whether the victim, shooter or argument was related to the restaurant in any way. Developing.
