NOPD Seeking Person of Interest in Fifth District Homicide

The NOPD is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a subject wanted in connection with a homicide that occurred last night (May 16, 2023) in the 1900 block of North Broad.

At about 8:47 p.m., NOPD Fifth District officers responded to a call of a shot person at the location. Upon arrival, officers located an unresponsive male subject down at the location. The victim was found to have sustained a gunshot wound(s) and was transported to a local hospital, where he was declared deceased.

Through investigation, detectives obtained video surveillance and have positively identified a subject wanted as a person of interest.  This person is not currently wanted in the homicide at this time, he is sought for questioning only.

Anyone with information as to the identity of this subject and his whereabouts is asked to contact Homicide at 504-658-5300 or Crimestoppers anonymously at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-7867.
