The NOPD has obtained an arrest warrant for a 17-year-old juvenile black male (not pictured), in the ongoing investigation of a homicide that occurred on April 14, 2022, in the 3700 block of Mansfield Drive.
At about 9:45 p.m. on April 14, NOPD Fourth District officers responded to a call of shots fired at the location. Upon arrival, responding officers discovered an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was transported by EMS to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
On April 18, the Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office identified the victim in this incident as 19-year-old Jestin Kinard.
Through investigation, NOPD Homicide Unit detectives developed and positively identified the juvenile as a perpetrator in this incident. On June 1, detectives secured an arrest warrant for the juvenile on one count of second-degree murder.
The juvenile is the second suspect identified in this incident. Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Felipe Brown-Sotello on May 29, later learning that he was incarcerated in Lafayette, La. on a probation violation.
