NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — A woman is wanted after detectives with the New Orleans Police Department say she fired shots at a group of people in Algiers Tuesday (Nov. 22) evening.
Police say 27-year-old Clarionta K. Jones is wanted for charges that include aggravated assault with a firearm stemming from an incident in the 3200 block of Rue Parc Fontaine.
We’re told that around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, the unidentified victim was standing near their parked car with seven other people nearby when a woman, later identified as Jones, passed the group of people.
