The NOPD issued a statement on Monday, February 7, stating an arrest warrant had been issued for 19-year-old Tyrese Carter in connection to an Algiers homicide that occurred in late January.
According to police, the shooting happened in the 3800 block of Texas Drive. When officers arrived, they found a male victim, later identified as 18-year-old Ross, suffering from gunshot wounds.
