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. . .

My baby diddin do nuffin!
Racist! Y’all racist!
So in other words, the boy should have been in jail and not out on the street shooting people who were watching a parade.
It’s an asian guy, am I right?
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.”
I'm sure he's a registered gun owner and paid member of the NRA. Probably a tea party terrorist too!

How about a pic of the perp?
Where’s the Photo, the description, and the BOLO for him.

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.
More of those darned Tea Party people.
can’t do it, it doesn’t fit the narrative.
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.
Amish gone wild...
“But if he was white, youd hear the sound of crickets.”
And you know this...how?
