NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A suspect in a Mid-City double shooting was apprehended on Sunday afternoon.

Jesse Banks, 30, was arrested in connection with a double shooting on June 6. The shooting happened in the 3000 block of Bienville Street. Two men, ages 29 and 32, suffered non-life threatening injuries in the shooting.

Banks was apprehended Sunday after police attempted to pull over his vehicle. Officers say a grey Nissan Altima was traveling at a high rate of speed in the 2200 block of Bienville Street.

Police say the car refused to stop. Banks allegedly bailed from the car in the 2300 block of Bienville Street and fled on foot, discarding a pistol as he ran. At this point, officers say they recognized Banks as a suspect in the June 6 shooting.

The suspect broke into a home to hide from officers, police say. Officers set up a perimeter and canine units were called to the scene. Banks surrendered to authorities after he was bitten by a canine unit, police say.

Banks was treated and released from hospital. He was booked into Central Lockup and charged with two counts of aggravated battery by shooting, felon in possession of a firearm, simple burglary and resisting an officer.

Banks was positively identified by the victims as the shooter in the incident.
