Slice of the criminal life

Email Blast

NOPD 2nd District

On October 20th at or about 2:45 am, the victim and his girlfriend were driving home after purchasing a hot dog at a Discount Zone. According to the victim, as he turned onto Joilet from Leake Avenue, he observed a subject he believed to be his friend, flagging him down. He pulled along side the subject and noticed it was not his friend. The subject asked the victim if he had $2. The victim replied “no”. The victim alleges that without any further provocation the subject pulled out a handgun and shot the victim in the arm.

Note: The victim’s girlfriend gave a very different story. According to her, the victim attempted to purchase crack cocaine from the suspect. He then became involved in an altercation with the suspect. As a result of that altercation, the suspect shot at the victim, hitting him once in the arm. Her boyfriend told her to lie about the incident, because he did not want to get in trouble for attempting to purchase drugs.

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