At about 7:10 a.m. on August 3 NOPD Fifth District officers responded to an initial call of a shot person at the location. Upon arrival, officers located an adult male having sustained physical trauma. The victim was declared deceased on scene and the incident was classified as a homicide. A subject located in the nearby area was detained for questioning.
