NOPD Arrests Juvenile Suspect in Investigation of 2021 Homicide

On November 8, 2022, the NOPD arrested a 17-year-old juvenile black male in the investigation of a homicide that occurred on May 11, 2021, in the 4200 block of Hamburg Street that left two juvenile victims dead.

At around 7:12 a.m., NOPD Third District officers responding to a call for service at the location discovered two unresponsive males, a 16-year-old and 17-year-old, both suffering with gunshot wounds.  The victims were pronounced deceased on scene.

Through investigation, NOPD Homicide Unit detectives developed and positively identified the juvenile as the perpetrator in this incident. On October 25, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect on two counts of second-degree murder.

On November 8, NOPD Violent Offender Warrant Squad officers arrested the suspect, who was then booked accordingly into the Juvenile Justice Intervention Center.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is urged to contact NOPD Homicide Det. Joseph Jefferson at 504-658-5300.
