NOPD Announces Arrests in Multiple Homicide Investigations

The NOPD today announced the arrest of two homicide suspects on April 21, 2022 – one of which is charged in two homicide cases. Also, detectives announced a clearance of an unrelated 2017 homicide incident by warrant.

Tyron Davis (pictured, black male, DOB: 01-21-2002) surrendered to the NOPD in the investigation of a homicide on April 9, 2022, in the 3700 block of Herschel Street, in the Seventh District. Davis was booked into the Orleans Parish Justice Center on a charge of second-degree murder. 

Unrelated to Davis' arrest, NOPD Homicide Unit detectives arrested Jovhan Lane (pictured, DOB: 11-21-2002) in connection with two homicide investigations – an incident on March 23, 2022, in the 7900 block of Dorsett Drive and an incident on April 2 in the 5000 block of Henri Drive. Lane has been charged with second-degree murder in each case and faces additional weapons and narcotics charges.

Additionally, NOPD Homicide Unit detectives obtained an arrest warrant on April 6, 2022, for Ray Farria (not pictured, black male, DOB: 12-21-1985) in connection with a homicide incident on April 17, 2017, in the 6000 block of Chef Menteur Highway. Farria faces a second-degree murder charge in this investigation. Detectives have learned that Farria is currently in the custody of the Louisiana Department of Corrections, where he is serving a sentence on a 2019 manslaughter conviction out of Jefferson Parish.

Since April 10, the NOPD Homicide Unit has cleared the above four cases and has also made two additional clearances by arrest earlier this month in homicide investigations.

Anyone with additional information on these or any open homicide investigation is asked to contact NOPD Homicide Unit detectives at 504-658-5300 or to call anonymously to Crimestoppers of Greater New Orleans at 504-822-1111 or call toll-free to 1-877-903-STOP.
