Overnight Crime Report: A Shooting, Two Stabbings, Unclassified Death

Against all odds for the booze-soaked holiday, New Orleans survived St. Patrick's Day with just four major crimes reported. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) responded to two stabbings, a shooting, and an unclassified death on Friday (3.17), according to the Major Offense Log (MOL). 


Police responded to reports at 5:37AM that there was a shooting on the 3400 block of Kabel Dr. When officers arrived on scene, they discovered a man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was pronounced on scene. 


At the intersection of Canal St. and Royal St., 37-year-old Kristina Medina got into a verbal altercation with a 52-year-old man at 8:47AM. The fight soon turned physical after Medina produced a box cutter and slashed the victim. The NOPD did not announce the victim's current condition, but he is in the hospital for treatment. 


On the 5300 block of Wildair Dr., a 77-year-old man was discovered to be unresponsive by a family member. The MOL noted that EMS arrived on scene and pronounced him dead. 


65-year-old Gary Bergeron found himself in police custody after an incident on the 2300 block of S. Robertson St. A 42-year-old struck Bergeron with his bicycle frame, after which Bergeron stabbed him. The man is in stable condition.
