Overnight Crime Report: Five Robberies, Three Shootings, Two Homicides, Rape, Carjacking, Property Snatching, Unclassified Death

The New Orleans Police Department saw fourteen crimes hit the city on Tuesday (5.16). According to the Major Offense Log (MOL), the NOPD responded to an aggravated rape, two homicides, two simple robberies, three armed robberies, three shootings, car jacking, property snatching, and an unclassified death. 


At 11:44AM, a 32-year-old woman was sexually assaulted on the 8600 block of Jeannette St.


An unknown man was discovered down on the 3700 block of Louisa St., suffering from multiple gunshot wounds at 5:01PM. He was pronounced dead on scene. 


At 5:22PM, a 29-year-old man was sitting in a car on the 1800 block of Forstall St. when two unknown subjects began shooting inside the vehicle. The man was struck by a bullet, and was brought to a nearby hospital by EMS. The MOL did not record his current condition. 


A 28-year-old man was walking on the 100 block of Bourbon St. at 4:04PM when a subject approached and demanding his belongings. He complied, and the perp ran off. 


At 7:35PM, an 18-year-old met a subject on the 2200 block of Cobblestone St. to sell him a Playstation. The subject pulled out a gun, and stole the Playstation.


At 8:08PM a 26-year-old man was attending a prayer vigil at the intersection of St. Claude and Alvar, when he heard shots fired. The man then realized he had been struck, and EMS brought him to the hospital. 


A 57-year-old woman was approached by an unknown subject on the 700 block of Canal St. at 9:41PM, when the subject grabbed her purse and fled toward the lake. 


A 22-year-old man and a 41-year-old male acquaintance were hanging out on the 2200 block of N. Galvez at 9:57PM. When an unknown subject starting shooting, the 22-year-old was struck multiple times and the 41-year-old was shot once. Both are in hospital for treatment. The MOL did not record their current conditions. 


At 10:43PM, a 59-year-old woman was approached by an unknown man on a bicycle while she stood in her driveway on the 4900 block of Treves St. The man demanded her car keys, at which time she threw her keys and began screaming. Her son came to the door, and the man fired a shot at him. The son returned with shooting his gun at the man, who fled in the woman’s car.


At 1:39AM, a 27-year-old man was found slumped over in the doorway of a residence on the 1200 block of Feliciana St., suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead on scene. 


At the intersection of Caffin and N. Claiborne, a 32-year-old man was approached by a man who held a gun to his head and demanded money at around 1:51AM. The victim complied, and the man fled with his wallet. 


At 2:55AM, a three-month-old infant male was found unresponsive by his mother in their home on the 1500 block of Feliciana St. He expired at a local hospital. 


A man was paying for a hot dog from a Lucky Dog at the intersection Royal and Canal St., when an unknown man snatched a $20 bill from him and fled at around 3:21AM. 


At 5:13AM, a 25-year-old woman was cut off by a man on a bike while traveling down the 1000 block of Bourbon. The man demanded her bag, at which time a struggle ensued. He then warned that he had a gun and would shoot if she didn’t let go of the bag, after which the purse strap broke and it fell to the ground. The man grabbed the bag and fled.
