A 21-year-old man remained hospitalized Thursday (Jan. 8), more than two weeks after he was shot during a botched robbery at a park on St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans police said.
But the recovering victim got some good news this week: With his identification of a suspect in a photo lineup, police arrested Taman Martin, 18, in the case.
Police allege Martin and three others went on a crime spree Uptown throughout December, robbing people, breaking into cars and stealing a vehicle. Martin was rebooked on charges of attempted murder and attempted armed robbery late Wednesday.
Police say Martin and his masked accomplice, who has not been arrested, approached two people who were in Danneel Park, at St. Charles Avenue and Octavia Street, on Dec. 20 around 10 p.m. The accomplice wielded a rifle-style gun, police said.
"Give me what you got," one of the assailants said, according to an arrest warrant. "This ain't no game."
Martin started patting down the victims and checking their pockets to see what they had, police said.
"You still think this is a game?" Martin said, according to the warrant. Then he ordered his accomplice: "Shoot him!"
The gunman shot the victim in the stomach, police said, leaving him in critical condition.
Police said they believe Martin's modus operandi is to pat down his victims. The victims in other crimes linked to him reported the same behavior, police said.
Martin and three others, Morris Smith, 17 and brothers Tevin Quinn, 20, and Darrell Quinn, 19, were all arrested after a police chase Sunday. Each was booked in four armed robberies Uptown that occurred between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday.
Cmdr. Paul Noel, who oversees the 2nd District Uptown, told reporters Thursday that authorities believe Martin and the other three also committed another eight to 12 crimes,

Lets see what the Momma of the two Quinn boys says as the police are putting her boys in jail.
A momma shouldn’t fear for her son’s life when he’s out committing a crime ....
Hands up! Don’t shoot! oh, wait a minute...
Terrible headline and even worse writing. It took me a while to understand what exactly happened.
Locking up four more from the Gibsmedat Tribe is a good start. Now if hanging was still in vogue, we wouldn’t have the expense of incarcerating this trash.
Time for another Katrina.
Another “botched robbery”
meaning the tables were turned and the victim fought back
NO!NO!NO! It would just spread the trash out more like it did last time.
“The accomplice wielded a rifle-style gun,”
no worry ...birds like this will soon get a free Obama college education...
That seems to be the case with all of hussein's sons.
Par for the course for the POS Times Picayune of today. The geniuses who own this paper took the only metro daily that made money as a newspaper and have turned it into a three day a week paper that is a complete crap. The goal is to eliminate the hard copy paper entirely and then charge for using the dailey e-paper site. The problem is the e-paper is full of poorly edited garbage such as this article. Most of the content in the hard copy parer are canned storied written days or weeks before. The leftist tilt has also gotten far worse with story after story on David Duke and the just awful things he and his EURO group believe in to try and force Scalise to step down from the House Whip position. All this while quietly avoiding the real societal story of how blacks in NOLA have become far more depraved as a group since Jim Crow went away.Liberals, wherever they are, have become incapable of realistic thinking and are determined to force their cloud cuckoo land view of the world on the rest of us. Parsing the TP is an education in how libs see the world.
Some years ago (pre-Katrina) some thug brothers came to this same ‘hood to hold up a man getting into his car, only to have their target turn around and shoot dead one bro, and hit the other so as to paralyze him. Talk about your Happy Endings!
I doubt that. The way the court system works for some, if all four serve 30 days combined it would surprise me.
Absolutely not. He is only doing what he is entitled to.
They look at being locked up as a vacation. Three hots and a cot.
Katrina just spreads this trash around to other cities. Ask someone in Houston or Mobile or way over in Jacksonville.
Large parts of New Orleans are a violent third-world sewer, and have been for decades. We can marvel at the apparent stupidity of some of its inhabitants, but the more depressing part is that they probably aren’t being “stupid” relative to their actual mental abilities - this is, in fact, what we’d expect of them given their sharply limited mental resources.
Which is why it keeps happening.
Any relation between Naomi Martin, journalist and Taman Martin, armed robber?
