Kyron Fazande, suspect in Mandina’s homicide, extradited from Texas to New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Kyron Fazande, the Chalmette man accused of murdering a server outside Mandina’s restaurant in April and wounding a patron inside, has been extradited from Texas to New Orleans on Monday (June 5).
Jail records show Fazande was booked into the Orleans Justice Center jail Monday at 8:59 p.m. The 22-year-old has been booked with single counts of second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and aggravated battery.
Fazande is accused of killing Mandina’s waiter Hilbert Walker III outside the famed Mid-City restaurant and wounding a Chicago woman who was dining inside. New Orleans police said she was struck by a bullet that came through the wall.
Fazande also has been accused of a murder in Houston, where authorities said he was hiding out with a girlfriend in the days after the Mandina’s shooting.
Houston police said last week that Fazande is suspected of fatally shooting a masked teenager in the parking lot of the apartment complex where he was staying. Witnesses reported seeing the masked 15-year-old looking into parked cars before he was shot in the head.
