NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A suspect was arrested Wednesday in connection with a shooting Mardi Gras night that killed two people and wounded three others.

Kendall Barnes, 22, was booked with two counts of second-degree murder and three counts of attempted second-degree murder in connection with the Feb. 13 shooting in the 5400 block of St. Claude Avenue.

Around 8:11 p.m., Fifth District officers responded to call reporting shots fired near the intersection of St. Claude and Lizardi Street. When they arrived, they found three victims inside a red Nissan Altima in the 5100 block of St. Claude Avenue, where they had fled after the shooting began. One victim died in the vehicle. A second victim was taken to University Medical Center, where he later died.

Three additional victims were taken to UMC in a private car.

“The arrest of Kendall Barnes shows again the NOPD will not relent until we bring those suspected of committing violent crimes to justice,” said NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison. “The shootings on Mardi Gras Day turned what was supposed to be a festive local celebration for all of our citizens into a time of terror for those near the scene of this horrific crime in the Lower Ninth Ward.”
