Monday's Wheel of Justice report included a pair of shootings.  Both happened in the afternoon.  Both happened in the Central City neighborhood.  One of them left a man dead;  the victim in the other case survived.

The first case happened on October 15 at 3:30 in the afternoon.  Police say a man was walking in the 1800 block of South Liberty Street.


Detectives say two men, identified as 24-year-old Edward Patterson and 25-year-old Keron Cooper, drove-up on their victim and opened fire.  The man survived so both suspects face an attempted murder charge.

The second shooting case left a man dead.  It happened at about 12:30 Sunday afternoon in the 2000 block of Washington Avenue.


The coroner identifies the victim as 27-year-old Alfred Johnson.  They say he was found shot to death on the sidewalk.  Police have not released any information regarding a suspect  or motive in the attack.

And Monday's report ended with the search for a man who is accused of trying to kill his ex-girlfriend.


The NOPD says 39-year-old Jose Lagos stabbed a woman several times Monday morning at a parking lot in Algiers.  She survived but, at last word, is in the hospital undergoing treatment for stab wounds to her torso.
