Four black men brutally ambushed two white tourists from Boston Saturday night in the 200 block of Bienville street in New Orleans. They would have gotten away with it except for one thing – cameras, and cameras don’t lie. The victims have been identified as Tim Byrne and James Curran, both staff members with the Unitarian Universalist Association, which was holding its national convention in New Orleans.
Curran was treated for a laceration to his eye area and released, church spokeswoman Rachel Walden said. But while Byrne was alive, he was in critical condition after sustaining “an acute brain injury” in the attack.
Local news reported the victim is brain dead in the hospital.
