NOPD Arrest Two, Obtain Arrest Warrants for Two in First District Shooting Investigation

The NOPD has arrested Jashawn Lambert (pictured, black male, DOB: 02-18-2002) and Johnell Hampton (pictured, black male, DOB: 10-09-2001) and has obtained arrest warrants for William Robinson (pictured, black male, DOB: 08-01-1995) and Jerome Jones (pictured, black male, DOB: 02-19-1990) in the investigation of an aggravated battery by shooting on January 15, 2022 in the 800 block of St. Louis Street.

At about 2:27 a.m. on January 15, the victim was reportedly standing in the area talking to two female subjects when an unknown black male allegedly approached the victim and said that the victim could not talk to the female subjects. An argument ensued between the victim and the suspect, during which time the suspect allegedly shot the victim multiple times and fled the scene.

Through investigation, NOPD First District detectives were able to positively identify the four aforementioned subjects as being involved in this incident, with Robinson being identified as the perpetrator of the shooting. Arrest warrants were obtained for each subject.

Robinson is wanted on one count of attempted second-degree murder, while Jones is wanted on one count of accessory to attempted first-degree murder and for simple battery. In addition to the arrest warrants, both Robinson and Jones are also sought for DNA buccal swabs in this investigation.

Johnell Hampton surrendered to police on February 8 regarding this investigation, while Jashawn Lambert surrendered to police on February 9. Both were booked into the Orleans Parish Justice Center on respective charges of obstruction of justice and simple battery.

Anyone with additional information on this incident or on the whereabouts of the remaining wanted suspects is asked to contact NOPD First District detectives at 504-658-6010 or call anonymously to Crimestoppers of Greater New Orleans at 504-822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP.
