Police name suspect in New Orleans parade shooting
CNN ^ | May 13, 2013 | By Jason Morris and Catherine E. Shoichet

Posted on 05/13/2013 8:05:37 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee

New Orleans (CNN) -- A suspect has been identified in a New Orleans parade shooting that left 19 people injured. Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas said that authorities are looking for 19-year-old Akein Scott.

Serpas said New Orleans police are familiar with Scott, who was arrested in March and may be out on bond.

"I would recommend strongly that Mr. Scott contact anybody who he is comfortable with to turn himself in," Serpas said.

When asked if Scott was the lone shooter, Serpas said it was still early in the investigation.

The superintendent credited several people calling a Crimestoppers tip line with helping to identify Scott.

Scott has been arrested in the past for possession of a firearm, resisting arrest and narcotics charges, among other charges, Serpas said.

Images of the parade, released by police Monday, show a man standing at the outskirts of a packed parade route. A moment later, he charges toward the crowd.

The dramatic surveillance camera images see the panicked crowd scrambling for cover. The man runs away, leaving scattered bicycles and bodies on the ground behind him.

The shooting, during a festive New Orleans Mother's Day parade, renewed concerns about crime in the city. . .

So in other words, the boy should have been in jail and not out on the street shooting people who were watching a parade.

No, probably. But if he was white, you’d hear the sound of crickets.

I doubt he is the shooter or if any shooing took place because as we all know, guns are illegal. As Spock would say “It’s all in the mind.”

Was he shooting at anybody in particular?

I'm sure he's a registered gun owner and paid member of the NRA. Probably a tea party terrorist too!

Yet more violence perpetrated by a young black male with a history of drug and firearm related convictions no less. That’s pretty strong evidence that we need to disarm law abiding citizens. That’s how liberals aim to keep us all safe.

We saw footage of the victime lying on the ground, wounded...on TV News in Australia. And all the victims we saw on that footage appeared to be WHITE PEOPLE.

I am quite certain this young maverick has big dreams. A real go-getter with a can-do attitude. The type of energetic wunderkind that always thinks outside the box.

I should subscribe to his newsletter as I was thinking perhaps I would like to start “Pimpin hoes” on a national scale and parlay that success into living like an “Original G”. Yo.

It’s a good read.

In 1900, this type of behavior was dealt with severely by the local citizenry.

That’s quite a special stance he’s got going there. I wonder if the feet pointing at 7:00 o’clock, or the left hand at 6:30 does more to counteract muzzle jump.

Hard to figure out which leg is which from that shot. It’s like one of those optical illusion GIFs. I first thought he had his back to us, then I saw your comment and thought, “maybe it’s the other way around”. Interesting style either way. Been hanging out at the Hollywood range again.

[Suspect is the wrong color to get press coverage.]

He was probably just trying to shoot one person—his ex-girlfriend. But since he was using the “tilt style” technique (holding pistol sideways) he shot everybody but.

"Akein"

Have we as a nation simply run out of decent names?

Why is it that so many who would shoot themselves within 15 minutes of landing in Africa and finding out that their EBT cards don't work there insist on giving their children "African" names. At least Akein is a real name somewhere and not just an imaginary name intended to sound like it has some ethnic origin.

While Im wondering aloud about this...what is it that causes people to come up with some of the bizarre names that kids are given these days? I realize much of it started in Hollywierd but even in backwaters now you will hear people say things like, "This is my daughter, Charles Buttsmuggle Lamppost Rodriguiz-Clapsaddle. We just couldn't help it, its such a cute name." MM-Hmm...yes...very cute....
