Police found out that a 19-year old boy was behind the shooting that took place in the city of New Orleans on Mother’s Day. Maybe if he’d been better loved by his own mother, Akein Scott would not have considered doing such a horrible thing to innocent men, women and children. Scott allegedly opened fire on a Mother’s Day parade in the city, wounding 19 people. Several are in critical condition.
Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas says that there is surveillance footage of the young man at the scene of the crime. They claim to have multiple identifications that show that Scott was the one responsible. Police are searching night and day for the young man, who is surely going to end up in prison for a very long time. Officers say that he is a drug dealer and has been arrested on both drug and arms charges.
“We would like to remind the community and Akein Scott that the time has come for him to turn himself in,” Serpas said.
Serpas also warned Scott that, “We know more about you than you think we know.”
Police aren’t sure if Scott was the only shooter. They offered up a $10,000 reward for the young man’s capture and the community stood up and gave several tips to law enforcement.
“The people today chose to be on the side of the young innocent children who were shot and not on the side of a coward who shot into the crowd,” Serpas said.
People in the city of New Orleans are angry about gun violence, which is plaguing their community. The deaths of innocent children were enough to make people stand up against the crime. Good for them.
