NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The Bourbon St. mass shooting suspect who was arrested in the Lafayette area is in New Orleans.

Investigators moved Travon Manuel to the Orleans Parish jail December 5. Manuel faces one count of second degree murder and nine counts of attempted murder.

Investigators suspect Manuel is one of the people responsible for last week's mass shooting on Bourbon St. One person died in the gunfire. Nine others were injured.

Jordan Clay, another suspect in connection with the incident, was arrested last week.

"We made a promise to track down the suspects responsible and bring them to justice, and together, we made good on that promise," said NOPD Supt. Michael Harrison in a written statement. "I want to thank the Louisiana State Police, FBI, ATF and Lafayette Police Department for providing the resources we needed to get the job done. There is a lot of work left to do and we will work diligently to build a strong case for the District Attorney's Office to ensure justice is served."
