So the Cajun Navy isn’t going to be rescuing from certain neighborhoods in Houston any more after looters tried to shoot them to, apparently, keep from being rescued so they could keep looting.

The famed Louisiana Cajun Navy is “standing down” in Houston after looters tried to steal their boats and fired gunshots at them.

The Cajun Navy made the announcement in a Facebook post Monday afternoon.

“Looters decided to pose as people needing rescue and they attempted to overtake the boats and there were shots fired at the boats,” the post said. “I repeat they are all safe. Looters must have not wanted our boats in the water for rescues.”

The Facebook post has since been removed.

Clyde Cain told CNN that a boat broke down, and while the crew sought shelter in a delivery truck, people tried to steal the inoperable boat.

“They’re making it difficult for us to rescue them,” he said. “You have people rushing the boat. Everyone wants to get in at the same time. They’re panicking. Water is rising.”

Because of the hostile responses, the Cajun Navy has been forced to halt some rescue attempts, Cain said.

The Cajun Navy formed a year ago amid historic, devastating floods in the Baton Rouge and Acadiana areas.

It’s a group of men and women who own boats and go out into flooded areas to help stranded people and perform other relief services that need boats.

They mobilized over the weekend as Houston and surrounding areas began to experience devastating floods.

“We are currently on stand down pending a new strategic plan,” members said.
