New Orleans, La. - The NOPD has arrested a 13 year-old and a 15 year-old just hours after they gunned down a local man Tuesday during an armed robbery attempt.
The shooting happened around 3pm at the intersection of Baudin Street and Carrollton.
Police say the teens walked up to 58 year-old Rafael Quintanilla who was sitting on the front steps of his home. The 13 year-old allegedly pointed a .380 caliber pistol at him and demanded that Quintanilla, "Give him everything".
Before Quintanilla could comply, the 13 year-old shot him in the stomach. Quintanilla was taken to the hospital where he died Tuesday night.
Officers were able to get a description of the teenagers from witnesses. Within minutes they apprehended the 15-year-old boy, who was easily recognizable because of his mohawk hairstyle.
Once he was taken into custody, he told detectives that the 13-year-old was the triggerman, and that he had been arrested before, and was wearing an ankle bracelet monitored by the Orleans Parish Criminal Sheriff's Office.
