NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The suspect in a Mother's Day parade shooting that left 19 people wounded in New Orleans was taken into custody Wednesday night, police said.

Akein Scott, 19, was arrested in the Little Woods section of eastern New Orleans, police department spokeswoman Remi Braden said. She said no additional details were available and would not be until Thursday morning. Police previously said Scott had an arrest record involving drug and weapon charges.

Court records show some had been dropped but he was facing a felony charge of illegally carrying a weapon while in possession of a controlled dangerous substance.

Scott was scheduled for a court hearing on motions related to that case Thursday. It was not immediately known whether he would be present for that hearing or whether it would be rescheduled.

The left will ignore certain obvious facts and continue blaming the NRA.

Assuming they can even make the charges stick, this guy will be out in a year or two.

As another FReeper once told me, the only difference between a victim who was wounded and a victim that was killed is the lousy aim of the criminal. The moral intent of the shooter is exactly the same in either case.

In other words, this little twerp deserves a ride in Ol' Sparky for what he's done. He won't get that, of course. I hope he'll at least get enough years in jail that he'll spend the rest of his life behind bars, though I doubt he'll get that much, either.

I am shocked that they did this without the lock down and house to house search and military type guys taking aim at civilians on the streets and asking stuff like, “Do you want to die?”

19 counts of attempted murder? Sentences to run consecutively? He should croak before doing much of his time owed.
