New Orleans police have arrested Akein Scott, 19, in connection with a shooting spree at an informal Mother’s Day parade that left 19 people wounded.
The police department’s Facebook page included a brief statement leading with “CAPTURED!” Police said they would provide more details on the arrest at a news conference later Thursday.
Surveillance video of the shooting scene Sunday showed the crowd fleeing and some people falling down as a man in a white T-shirt and dark pants fled. Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas said Monday that Scott had been identified by multiple people as the possible gunman.
Serpas has said it was too early to say whether Scott is the only suspect. Earlier, police had said that three gunmen were involved and that at least two different weapons were used.
