Police search for man who shot son, attempted to kill 2 others

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Police are searching for a man who attempted to kill three people in New Orleans East, one of which was his own son.

According to NOPD, a warrant is out for the arrest of 38-year-old Clayton Mays for three counts of attempted homicide. 

Police say Mays had a verbal altercation on the phone with a 41-year-old woman then went to her home at 7525 Forum Boulevard and confronted her armed with a gun. He then fired several shots inside the house while the woman and two males, one 16 and one 13-years-old, were inside the residence.

The 16-year-old's head was grazed by a bullet and he was transported to the hospital. Police said that Mays is the biological father of the 16-year-old, but did not say what his relation was to the other two victims.

Anyone with information on Mays' location or this incident is asked to call CRIMESTOPPERS at 504-822-1111.
