NOPD: AmeriCorps Worker Mistakenly Shot In Ongoing Gang Feud

New Orleans police released new information Friday in the murder of an AmeriCorps worker earlier this year.

Police say the victim, Joseph Massenburg, was killed in a case of mistaken identity in an ongoing gang war.

Police say Massenburg was apparently mistaken for a member of the Hot Glocks gang by a member of the feuding Mid-City Killers gang.  Police say that was the motive for Massenburg’s murder in front of his home on Eagle Street.

Thursday night, police announced the arrest of 18-year-old Glen Emerson.  They say he is a member of the Mid-City Killers gang and drove the getaway car on the night of the attack.

Police also say they’re searching for at least one other person who was involved in the murder.
