NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Nearly one month after a man was shot in Algiers, police have identified a person who could help them move the case forward.

NOPD has identified 32-year-old Ashley Jones as a person of interest in connection to an aggravated battery by shooting. Police say Jones is not wanted on any criminal charges, however, police believe she could have critical information related to the case.

The shooting occurred on Tuesday, April 5 in the 2100 block of Westbend Parkway.

Around 11 p.m., the NOPD Major Offense Log reports a suspect approached a male victim from behind and opened fire, striking the victim in the leg. The suspect then ran away.
