NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Joseph "Moe" Allen was released from Orleans Parish Prison Wednesday after video surveillance proved his innocence in the Bunny Friend Playground shooting.

The video showed Allen, 32, shopping in Texas with his pregnant wife on Nov. 22, the same day 17 people were shout at the park.

Prosecutors refused the charges against Allen Tuesday.

"Stressful, I lost my job," Allen said as he stood with his family in front of the jail. "It's a lot of stress they put on my wife, too. i'm glad to be home." 

Despite having the charges dismissed, Allen remained behind bars on a parole hold. His attorney said it is based on an issue in Texas that he will address soon.

Allen spent 12 days locked up in jail.

On Saturday, 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. 

On Tuesday, detectives also identified 22-year-old Allen “Snoop” Offray and 22-year-old Shawn “Shooter” Ruffin as being among those who opened fire at the playground.
