Overnight Crime Report: Three Carjackings, Two Simple Robberies, Two Shootings, Stabbing, Homicide, Unclassified Death

The New Orleans Police Department saw ten crimes hit the city on Monday (8.7). According to the Major Offense Log (MOL), the NOPD responded to a stabbing, two shootings, three carjackings, homicide, two simple robberies, and an unclassified death. 


At 11:31AM, a 20-year-old man was involved in a verbal altercation with the mother of his child in a residence on the 6900 block of Lake Kenilworth Dr. At some point in the fight, the woman stabbed him and fled. According to the MOL, “EMS refused.” The victim’s current condition is unknown. 


Two 29-year-old men were talking in the driveway of a residence on the 2400 block of Jonquil St. when an unknown man wearing a black and green mask approached at 5:37PM. The masked man then open fire on the two men, striking them. Their current conditions are unknown. 


On the 1800 block of Almonaster Ave., a 62-year-old man was approached by an unknown man at 6:24PM. The unknown subject fired one shot at the man, who was transferred to a nearby hospital via EMS. His current condition is unknown. 


At 7:17PM, an unknown armed subject jumped into the car of a 39-year-old man (gray 2004 Chevy Silverado, unknown tag) on the 1400 block of Simon Bolivar Blvd. The car owner jumped into the bed of his truck in a successful attempt to stop the perp, as the subject then stopped the car and fled the scene on foot. 


NOPD units arrived to the 4200 block of S. Prieur St. to find an unknown man unresponsive from an apparent gunshot wound. At 9:17PM, he was pronounced on scene by EMS. 


At 9:21PM, a 31-year-old woman was approached from behind by an unknown man on the 1400 block of N. Villere St. The man grabbed her purse from her shoulder and fled. 


At the intersection of Chef Menteur Hwy. and Desire, a 30-year-old woman was sitting at the bus stop at 11:35PM with a woman named Lisa when a known male stole her purse. A struggle ensued, and the woman was thrown to the ground. The MOL alleged that the man and Lisa fled the scene, and the victim found her purse nearby with $70 missing. 


At the 12:26AM, a 61-year-old was found with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound on the 200 block of Baronne St. He was pronounced dead on scene. 


A 30-year-old man was sitting in his car with a friend at 1:20AM at the intersection of N. Villere St. and Touro St. when an unknown male jumped into the car with a two by four. The victim drove off a couple blocks to Touro and St. Claude Ave., at which time the perp fled the scene. 


At 2:38AM, a 28-year-old woman was in a store on the 2700 block of Royal St. when an unknown armed male approached, demanding her money. She complied, and threw her phone, credit card, and keys to the ground and the perp fled in her purple 2001 PT Cruiser.
