NOPD Arrests Suspect in Homicide Investigation

The NOPD’s Violent Offender Warrant Squad (VOWS) and the U.S. Marshals today (October 13, 2021) arrested Nairobi K. Davis (pictured, black male, DOB: 04-07-1999) in the investigation of a double homicide incident on October 6, 2021 in the 600 block of General Taylor Street that also injured two additional victims.

At about 1:26 p.m., NOPD Sixth District officers responded to a call of an aggravated battery by shooting at the location. Upon arrival and investigation, it was learned that four adult male victims had sustained gunshot wounds. The victims were transported via EMS to a local hospital. Two of the victims were later pronounced deceased.

As investigation into the incident progressed, NOPD Homicide Unit detectives developed and positively identified Davis as a suspect and obtained an arrest warrant on two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of attempted second-degree murder.

Davis was located by VOWS and the U.S. Marshals today at a residence in the 1700 block of Hendee Street, where he was arrested without incident and booked accordingly into the Orleans Parish Justice Center.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is asked to contact NOPD Homicide Unit Detective Miles Guirreri at 504-658-5300.
