New Orleans police made a quick arrest Monday in the fatal shooting of a man in New Orleans East.

Demond Boutte, 33, was taken into custody moments after police believe he shot 29-year-old Calvin Everett in a parking lot in the 5700 block of Crowder Boulevard.

The incident occurred just after midnight.

Sergeant Michael Stalbert and Officer Kevin Doucette were working an off-duty security detail when they heard gunfire. The officers arrived at the scene and found the victim lying in the parking lot. He had been shot multiple times and died at the hospital.

Witnesses told officers that Boutte was running through the parking lot toward Lake Forest Boulevard. Officer Doucette chased Boutte on foot and was able to catch him after a brief struggle.

Police said Boutte was found with a loaded pistol. He was booked with second-degree murder.

Homicide Detective Theo Kent is in charge of the investigation.
