19-year-old among 3 killed in separate New Orleans shootings Tuesday, coroner reports
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Three men killed in separate New Orleans shootings on Tuesday have been identified by the parish coroner.
In total, six people were shot in the city on Tues., April 19.
First, New Orleans police found Arnold Jones, 38, lying unresponsive in a grassy, remote area of New Orleans East on Highway 11 around 2:43 p.m. He died on the scene around an hour later, according to NOPD.
Officials say a triple shooting killed 19-year-old Jamont Love and injured two other teenage females at the intersection of Allen and N. Rocheblave Streets around 6:43 p.m. Police have released few details about the shooting, only that one of the women was transported to the hospital in unknown condition and the second arrived in a private vehicle with a graze wound.
Around 20 minutes later, at 7 p.m., police discovered two men shot on A.P. Tureaud Boulevard and they were transported to the hospital. Nicholas Carter, 27, later died from his injuries, the coroner reports. The condition of the second victim is unknown.
Soon after, police arrested Montreal Baham as the suspected shooter. He’s currently booked on second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder charges.
Court records show Baham twice avoided prison time last year despite guilty pleas entered in Orleans Parish Criminal District Court.
Police do not believe the shootings are related.
