Overnight Crime Report: Domestic Battery, Three Armed Robberies, Two Carjackings, Triple Shooting

The New Orleans Police Department saw seven crimes hit the city on Tuesday (4.18). According to the Major Offense Log (MOL), the NOPD responded to a domestic aggravated battery, three armed robberies, two carjackings, and a triple shooting. 


At 10:29AM, a 46-year-old man was working when he was approached by an armed man on the 3000 block of N. Derbingy St. The perp fled in the man’s Dodge truck, which was later recovered. 


At the intersection of Hayne and Vincent, a 17-year-old man was approached by an armed man at 4:36PM. The perp demanded his belongings, and fled in possession of his iPhone, Beats head phones, and $50 in cash. 


A 23-year-old man was unloading his car on the 3000 block of Casimire St. when he was approached by three men requesting a light. The victim told the group he didn’t have one, after which they all pulled guns and stole his 2007 black Chevy Monte Carlo (LA # RHU 088) at around 9:01PM. 


At 9:17PM, a 60-year-old woman and her 38-year-old female acquaintance were opening the front door of a residence on the 2200 block of Athis St. They were approched from behind by an armed unknown male, who proceeded to fire upon them and another man. The 60-year-old woman died on scene, while the 38-year-old woman and a 61-year-old man were brought to a nearby hospital. 


On the 3200 block of Canal St., a 30-year-old woman was approached by a man who implied he had a gun before demanding her purse, wallet, and iPhone. The perp fled the scene with belongings in hand at 10:51PM in an unknown direction. 


A 23-year-old man and his girlfriend were having a verbal fight at around 11:41PM on the 7100 block of Bundy Rd. As she was leaving the scene, she hit her boyfriend with her car and fled the scene. A warrant for her arrest has been filed. Detectives did not release the man’s current condition.
