Overnight Crime Report: Homicide, Stickup, Domestic Violence

The New Orleans Police Department only responded to three crimes on Wednesday (11.16), but the incidents were violent. The Major Offense Log (MOL) reports one homicide, a vicious stickup, and a case of domestic violence.


30-year-old James Tate was arrested for Aggravated Battery after an alleged fight with the mother of his child and friend of hers. Police stated that around 2:50p.m., Tate and his two month old baby’s mom started arguing on the 5600 block of Pauline St. The woman, child, and a friend tried to leave the spot in a car, but Tate got physical trying to pull them out of the vehicle, explained authorities. The NOPD added that when the trio managed to drive away, Tate shot at the vehicle, grazing one of the women inside. The 17-year-old victim was listed in stable condition.


At 12:37a.m., a 34-year-old woman was walking into her house on the 800 block of Picheloup Place when an armed gunman approached her according to the Department. The MOL described the perp putting a gun to the victim’s head and then taking her purse and her car keys. Detectives said that the man first tried to flee in his victim’s car, but he could not drive stick and instead ran off.


Police reported that following a fight inside a home on the 1300 block of Deslonde St., a man was shot around 3:33a.m. The victim later died in the hospital and the suspect was arrested.
