NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The NOPD has identified two more suspects in connection with a Ninth Ward playground shooting that injured 17 people on Nov. 22.

Through the course of the investigation, including witness participation and Crimestoppers tips, detectives identified 22-year-old Allen “Snoop” Offray and 22-year-old Shawn “Shooter” Ruffin as being among those who opened fire into a crowd at Bunny Friend Playground located in the 1900 block of Gallier Street.

Around 6:15 p.m., several hundred people were gathered at the playground for a block party when witnesses say at least two groups of individuals began shooting at each other. Witnesses told police that the suspects left the park on foot immediately after the shooting.

On Dec. 4 the NOPD identified Quendrick “C4” Bailey, Lawrence “L” Veals, Michael “Mack” Allen and Rashad "KMG EZZY" Walker as suspects. Veals turned himself in on Dec. 4 and Walker surrendered Dec. 5. Allen turned himself in to police Tuesday and Bailey is still at large. 

Fifth District Detectives are in charge of the ongoing investigation and can be contacted at 658-6050.
