Suspect Sought in French Quarter Shooting

April 07, 2014

(April 07, 2014) Eight district detectives are asking the public’s assistance in locating a suspect who might go by the nickname “T-Dog”. The suspect is believed to be the shooter in Sunday morning’s incident in the 800 block of Iberville Street. A 19-year-old male was shot  and  is recovering from his injuries.

According to the victim during the early morning hours this past Sunday around 4:25am, he met a familiar suspect whom he thinks uses the nickname “T-Dog”, and one other unfamiliar suspect in the 700 block of Bourbon Street. The victim stated he agreed to walk with the two suspects to a parking garage located in the 800 block of Iberville Street. Once inside the garage “T-Dog” produced a pistol and demanded the victim’s money. The victim fearing for his safety ran from the suspects when they opened fire on him as he fled. The victim finally collapsed at Bourbon and Bienville Street after realizing he’d been shot. Both suspects fled towards Dauphine Street then unknown. Video surveillance in the area captured the suspects fleeing. The victim is currently recovering from a gunshot wound to the back and shoulder.  

A small amount of narcotics were found on the scene by officers. 

“T-Dog” is described as an African American male, about 6’06” tall, in his mid-20’s, with tattoos on his nose and face. The suspect was last seen wearing a red shirt and red baseball cap.

The second suspect who was unfamiliar to the victim was described as an African American male about 6’03” tall, about 18 years-old, last seen wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt.
