Bourbon Street shooting 'person of interest' Justin Odom 'never suspected' of pulling trigger, attorney says

The "person of interest" questioned and released by authorities in the fatal Bourbon Street mass shooting is not suspected of being the gunman whose bullets struck 10 people, the man's attorney said Thursday.

Justin Odom, 20, answered questions from NOPD homicide detectives for about two hours on Wednesday, said his attorney, Gregory Thompson, who was present at the interview. Odom had turned himself in hours after police publicized they were looking for him in connection with Sunday's (June 29) shooting that left a woman dead and wounded nine others.

It's still unclear the extent of Odom's involvement in or knowledge of the shooting. Two of the male gunshot victims are associates of his, judging from their social media profiles and arrest records. And police said Wednesday they also were searching for one of Odom's associates named Josh or Joe as part of the investigation.

Thompson declined to provide details of what Odom told detectives. After the interview Odom was booked into Jefferson Parish jail on traffic and theft-related charges unrelated to the shooting.

Thanks for the update. Looks like he may indeed be a real scumbag, but maybe just not one guilty of gunning down 10 people.

The gangbanger and Black Panther types hereabouts are going to be disappointed but will nevertheless be ever hopeful that it can eventually be pinned on another white man in a white van, guilty or not.
