Only seven gunshot victims in New Orleans?

I find this hard to believe:

New Orleans Coroner Frank Minyard, whose forensic team has conducted scores of autopsies on the 650 or so bodies recovered from New Orleans says he has run across only seven gunshot victims. "Seven gunshots isn't even a good Saturday night in New Orleans," Dr. Minyard says.

There's an interesting addition provided here:

Dr Minyard said gunshot wounds had been found in seven bodies, and a woman appeared to have been strangled with an extension cord.
