NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

One of the gunmen accused of pulling the trigger in the Bourbon Street mass shooting heads to court for a hearing.

It was at the intersection of Bourbon and Iberville streets where nine people were shot and one man was killed back on November 27.

Jordan Clay, one of the men investigators say fired shots into the crowd will be in court today.

Clay came to New Orleans from Lafayette that weekend, according to police, having been involved in a dispute with another Lafayette man.

That argument boiled over onto Bourbon Street when they fired gunshots at each other, police say.

An investigation by New Orleans Police, Louisiana State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation led to Clay’s arrest. He was extradited from St. Martin Parish.

Demontris Toliver, 25, an aspiring tattoo artist from Baton Rouge, was killed in the shooting.

His father had emotional words about his son after Clay was arrested.

“I just thank them that they got justice for me and my family and I just want each and everyone of y'all to just keep us in y'alls prayers,” Toliver said. “Most of all me, because I done lost a part of my life.”

The other suspect, Kavon Manuel, 20, also from Lafayette was arrested earlier this month.
