Police arrest teen wanted for Algiers shooting

New Orleans, La - New Orleans Police Officers arrested a 17-year-old wanted for a shooting that took place in Algiers. Alvin Alvarez was taken into custody on Wednesday. Alvarez was wanted for a shooting that took place Tuesday night following a basketball game. The shooting occurred in the 1200 block of L.B. Landry Avenue near L.B. Landry High School. 

Police say that Alvarez shot another 17-year-old boy in the leg. Also injured was a 17-year-old girl who received powder burns to the face and eyes as a result of being in close proximity to the gun.

Through their investigation, police were able to identify Alvarez. He was located at a relative's house in the 1900 block of Pace Boulevard. Alvarez was taken to Central Lock Up and booked with aggravated battery by shooting and negligent injury.

"From the time this gunman opened fire on these teenagers to the time our detectives picked him up, only 12 hours had passed.   Our team did a great job", said Superintendent Ronal Serpas

"And since our 4th District detectives believe this suspect had an accomplice, I want to ask people who know anything about this shooting to please contact police or CrimeStoppers.  The victims deserve this, as do the people of New Orleans."
