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. 

 

Readers with information that can help solve a crime are asked to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP. You could receive a cash reward of up to $2,500 for the information leading only to the arrest, except on homicides, where Crimestoppers will pay half of the reward upon the arrest and half on the indictment of the responsible person(s). You do not have to give your name nor testify to receive the reward but you must contact Crimestoppers directly with your information. Citizens can also submit an anonymous tip online to Crimestoppers at www.crimestoppersgno.org.
