NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The New Orleans Police Department obtained an arrest warrant for Eddie Dingle, 18, in connection with a homicide that occurred on Mardi Gras in the 2400 block of St. Charles Ave.

NOPD officers heard gunshots ring out around 3:45 p.m. while they were working along the St. Charles Ave. parade route. The officers rushed over to the opposite side of the parade route to investigate, where they observed the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, officers said.

EMS arrived on the scene quickly and transported the victim to a local hospital.

During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that the victim was reportedly involved in a verbal altercation with another unknown male subject, who allegedly produced a gun and opened fire.

The victim in this incident later died while at the hospital, at which point NOPD Homicide Unit detectives took over the investigation.

Upon further investigation, detectives developed and positively identified Dingle as the perpetrator and obtained a warrant for his arrest for second-degree murder in connection with this incident.

No further information on this active investigation is available at this time.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Eddie Dingle or information regarding this incident is asked to contact NOPD Homicide Detective Thaddeus Williams at 504-658-5300. Citizens with information that can help solve crimes are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.

    Officials say a fox and an alpaca died of their injuries, Sunday, after a Saturday attack by a jaguar that escaped from his enclosure at the Audubon Zoo. That brings the total to eight animals Valerio killed while on the loose. Yet, visitors weren't deterred. In fact, some say the attack was their motivation.
