NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD has arrested a 15-year-old juvenile male in an aggravated battery by shooting that occurred on April 24, 2019 in the 6700 block of Wales Street and left three victims injured.

At about 4:45 p.m., NOPD Seventh District officers responded to the location on a call of a shooting. Upon arrival and investigation, officers learned that three male victims – identified as two 15-year-old juvenile males and an 18-year-old adult male – suffered gunshot wounds to the body. Two of the victims were transported to a local hospital via EMS, while the third victim arrived at a local hospital via private conveyance.

Two additional male victims were identified in this incident, but were not injured.
