2nd District email blast 6/13/07

On June 12th at or about 10:20 pm, a white male picked up a black female
(known to him as Evelyn), at the corner of Hickory and Leonidas Street.
The male knew Evelyn vaguely, having met her once before. It is not
clear if he intended to pick her up or just happened to see her and
stop. After getting into the car, Evelyn directed the male to drive to
the corner of Adams and Hickory Street. While stopped at that location,
a black male walked up to the vehicle. The black male claimed that the
victim owed him money. He then began shooting into the car, striking the
white male once in the arm. At some point during the shooting, Evelyn
exited the car. She fled on foot and was unable to be located.

The white male victim in this case does not reside in New Orleans. He
sustained a single gunshot wound to his arm. His injuries are not life
threatening.

When officers located the crime scene, they found bullet casings along
with a “crack” pipe. Given the victim’s background, statements,
inconsistencies and evidence located on the scene – he may have been
attempting to purchase illegal narcotics. The investigation is ongoing.

The suspect in this case can only be described as a black male in his
early 20’s. The victim was unable to provide any physical or clothing
description whatsoever.

If you have any information on this case, please contact Sgt. Chris
Cambiotti or Det. Jimmie Turner at 658-6022 or 658-6020. You may also
call Crimestoppers anonymously at 822-1111.

Remember to report any suspicious persons or activities you see in your
neighborhood by calling 821-2222. In an emergency, call 911 immediately.
