NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The NOPD is asking for the public’s help in finding and identifying an individual wanted for aggravated assault with a firearm at a New Orleans East convenience store.

Police said it happened at the Brother’s Food Mart at 5701 Crowder Boulevard on March 16 at about 7:45 p.m.

Police say the unidentified man entered the store and got into a verbal argument with the cashier. They say he then used his hand, gesturing as though he was shooting. The subject then left in a late-model silver GMC pick-up truck, made a U-turn, re-entered the parking lot and held a black gun out the window, taunting the employees inside the store before driving away.

Anyone with information regarding this incident are asked to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
