NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — People gathered in Congo Square in Armstrong Park to remember Portia Pollock.

The 60-year-old was stabbed outside her home on North Dorgenois on Tuesday morning during a fatal carjacking.

The New Orleans Police Department have identified 47-year-old Bryan Andry as the killer.

Andry was arrested after four days on the run.

He was out on reduced bail on two armed robbery charges from 2020.

A spokesperson for Judge Angel Harris, who reduced his bond, said she did so to allow him drug treatment.
