Superdome Evacuation Halted after Shots Fired at Helicopter

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - An ambulance official says the evacuation of the Superdome in New Orleans has been suspended because it's too dangerous.

The
head of Acadian Ambulance, which is evacuating the sick and injured from the stadium, says the evacuation won't resume until security officials "gain control of the Superdome."

A
National Guard official says thousands of people have rushed toward the dome to try to get on buses taking people from the stadium to the Astrodome in Texas.

The
medical official says a medi-vac helicopter pilot reported an armed mob when he tried to land last night at a hospital in the city's outskirts. The pilot didn't land.

And
the official says medics are calling for help, because they are scared of armed people outside the Superdome.
