“Preliminary investigation indicates this was not random, and the decedent may have been targeted,” Brown said in a news release. “Homicide investigators are working to determine the circumstances around the shooting.”
No other details have been released, including the name of the victim. It is the second fatal shooting in the Old Fourth Ward within the span of a few days.
On Sunday afternoon, 52-year-old Eddie Jackson was arrested on charges of murder and aggravated assault after police said an argument at an apartment building on Boulevard escalated to gunfire. The victim killed in that shooting has not been publicly identified.
