The New Orleans police superintendent, reeling from the deaths of six people over the holiday weekend, said he would ask the governor to keep National Guard troops in the city past the end of the year, when their mission to help patrol hurricane-damaged neighborhoods was to end. Superintendent Warren J. Riley planned to ask that the Guard stay through June. Soldiers began patrolling New Orleans neighborhoods in June after five teenagers were killed in a shooting. The Guard focused on areas most devastated by Hurricane Katrina so the police could focus on crime-ridden areas. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, violence claimed six lives and raised the city’s homicides for the year to 147. A spokeswoman for Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco said the governor would reassess the need to extend the Guard’s presence in New Orleans at the end of the year.
