On Thursday, June 9, 2022, Jordan Mitchell (not pictured, black male, DOB: ) of Slidell, La. was arrested in the ongoing NOPD investigation of an aggravated battery by shooting that occurred earlier that day at the intersection of Marques Drive and Chef Menteur Highway and left two teenage juveniles injured. The arrest was made through the assistance of the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office.
At about 5:30 a.m., NOPD Seventh District officers responded to a call for service at the location and discovered two teenage juvenile females, both having sustained gunshot wounds. The victims were transported via EMS to a local hospital in critical condition.
Through investigation, NOPD Seventh District detectives and STPSO detectives developed and positively identified Mitchell as a perpetrator in this incident. An arrest warrant was obtained on two counts of attempted murder.
On the evening of June 9, STPSO deputies located and arrested Mitchell at a residence in Slidell, La. He was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Correctional Center as a fugitive and will be transferred to Orleans Parish to face the aforementioned charges.
“I want to thank Sheriff Randy Smith and the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in this operation,” NOPD Superintendent Shaun Ferguson said. “This is another excellent example of how our cooperation and partnership results in finding those believed to be responsible for crimes in our respective jurisdictions and holding them accountable."
