The New Orleans Police Department saw five crimes hit the city on Thursday (8.10). According to the Major Offense Log (MOL), the NOPD responded to two shootings, a simple robbery, an aggravated burglary, and a stabbing. 


At 3:44PM, a 16-year-old male was walking on the 5600 block of Lafaye St. when he received a gunshot wound, shot by an unknown perp. He was brought to the hospital for treatment. His current condition is unknown. 


A 17-year-old male was found on the 2800 block of S. Robertson St. suffering from a gunshot wound at 9:39PM. The wound occurred after a shootout with a small white Volkswagen sedan, reported the MOL. The teen is in stable condition. 


37-year-old Otis Parker was arrested following a simple robbery at the intersection of Poydras St. and Loyola Ave. At 10:44PM, Parker allegedly grabbed a 40-year-old woman's cell phone and threw it on the ground. NOPD officers apprehended him on the 900 block of St. Peter St. 


At 11:46PM, a 33-year-old man was sitting in his living room on the 5300 block of Pasteur St. when three unknown armed men came in to his house through his unlocked front door. The trio demanded his money, and as he complied the perps attacked him. One subject hit him in the head with his gun, while another shot him before the group fled the scene. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. His current condition is unknown. 


A 27-year-old man was walking with an acquaintance on the 500 block of Toulouse St. At 3:22AM, the duo got into a verbal altercation. When the man attempted to walk away from the situation, the subject stabbed him twice with scissors.

NOPD officers apprehended the subject on the 400 block of Decatur St. The victim refused EMS treatment.
