On Wednesday night’s “Wheel of Justice” report, we showed you 16-year-old Brian Ellis who, police say, is a suspect in the brutal attack of a man in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood.  According to police, Ellis and two unidentified people attack the man, stole his phone, and may have targeted another man for a robbery.

Also on the Wheel, police released a photo of a man who is believed to be a person of interest in a double shooting in Mid-City.  In that case, a couple was shot and robbed, but both victims survived the attack.

Police also released new video that they hope will catch a killer.  The video shows a man who police call a suspect in the murder of a man, Sunday night, in the 8100 block of Belfast St.  There’s also a $2,500 reward in that case.

And finally on Wednesday’s “Wheel of Justice”, surveillance video shows just how quickly purse snatchers can strike.  The video shows a team of three people distract a woman, snag her purse, and quickly get away with the goods without anyone in a popular Poydras Street bar noticing a thing.
