The NOPD and U.S. Marshals have arrested a 15-year-old juvenile male in connection with a shooting that occurred on March 15, 2018 in the 2400 block of Jonquil Street.

At about 5:43 p.m., two unknown black males were reportedly seen shooting at a residence. The victim was shot in the right upper thigh and was transport by EMS to an area hospital for treatment.
