NOPD Arrests Suspect in Homicide on Bienville Street

The NOPD has arrested Roosevelt Iglus (DOB: 10-10-1991) in the homicide by shooting of Muhiyidin Moye, which occurred on February 6, 2018 in the 1900 block of Bienville Street.

At about 1:24 a.m., First District officers responded to a call of an aggravated battery by shooting in the area. Upon arrival, officers found a male victim – later identified as Moye – with an apparent gunshot wound to the leg. The victim was transported to a local hospital in critical condition and later died. The incident was then reclassified as a homicide.

As the investigation progressed, NOPD Homicide Unit detectives received a Crimestoppers tip that aided them in positively identifying Iglus as the perpetrator in this incident. Detectives were then able to obtain a warrant for Iglus’ arrest.

On July 24, NOPD Homicide detectives and members of the NOPD’s Tactical Intelligence Gathering and Enforcement Response Unit, or TIGER, apprehended and arrested Iglus in the 700 block of Iberville Street without incident. Iglus was booked into the Orleans Parish Justice Center for second degree murder.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is asked to contact NOPD Homicide Detective Brett Mathes at 504-658-5300.

Citizens with information that can help solve crimes are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
