Overnight Crime Report: Shooting, Stabbing, Carjacking

Only three crimes made the Major Offense Log (MOL) for Friday (4.22), but one incident was a double shooting. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) also reported a stabbing and a carjacking.


Police reported finding two men bleeding out from gunshot wounds on the 4000 block of Tulane Avenue at 2:54a.m. One man was declared on the scene and the second man was taken to the hospital where he was treated for a wound to his legs. 


A warrant was issued for the arrest of 29-year-old Gary Saxton on charges of Carjacking. A 32-year-old woman picked up Saxton at 2624 Vienna Street to drive him to the airport explained NOPD PIO Aaron Looney. Looney said that once Saxton got into the car, he proceeded to pull out a handgun, and order the driver out. He then allegedly drove off with the vehicle.


Around 2:29a.m., an unidentified woman got into an argument with 32-year-old Derek Henderson that escalated into a knife fight stated the NOPD. Looney stated that Henderson slashed the victim in the arm before before being stabbed himself. The victim was treated on the scene and Henderson was taken to the hospital for treatment. He will be arrested following release.
