Attorney says client would need Millennium Falcon to have been involved in Bunny Friend Playground shooting.

NEW ORLEANS—The New Orleans Police Department has announced a suspect in a park shooting that left 17 people wounded last month has surrendered to authorities. A statement from NOPD superintendent Michael Harrison released after the charges were dropped said Allen was identified as a suspect based on eyewitness testimony. “Through the course of the investigation, detectives gathered enough evidence to obtain an arrest warrant and make an arrest.

Michael “Mack” Allen, 29, Eddie “Eazy” Copelin, 20, Malik “Leaky” Johnson, 17, Lawrence “L” Veals, 19, and Rashad “KMG EZZY” Walker, 22, are all in custody, NOPD said. In a surprising development Tuesday, the first suspect named in the case, Joseph “Moe” Allen, was cleared of all charges after a video proved he was in Texas at the time of the shooting.

Four are in custody while the others remain at-large. “We will continue to follow this investigation wherever it leads us so we can take every individual involved in this violent incident off of our streets.” The photos below will give you an idea of what the footage shows. “Unless he’s Han Solo and he’s flying the Millennium Falcon, there’s no way he could come back here and come back over. It’s a five and a half hour drive,” defense attorney Kevin Boshea said about the investigation and the evidence he brought to court. “The shooting in Bunny Friend park remains an open investigation, and there’s other individuals who have been arrested,” Bowman said. “Therefore pursuant to office policy, the District Attorney’s office will have no further comment on this matter.” According to the NOPD, the gunfight on November 22 began when at least two rival gangs or groups began shooting at one another. Each is booked with 17 counts of attempted murder, one for each of the victims hurt in the shooting. “We made a commitment to aggressively work this investigation from the start and leave no stone unturned.

Boshea says the arrest in New Orleans put the parole on hold, so his client will have to remain in jail for a few more days until the issue is settled.
