NEW ORLEANS - The NOPD has released some new video of the suspect in the shooting of an officer Saturday morning.

Officer John Passaro was wounded as he entered the Dollar General Store in response to a call of a robbery in progress.

The NOPD previously released some images of the suspect, which were blurry and showed a man with a hoodie and a mask obscuring his face.

The video released Wednesday shows the suspect walking around and hanging around a bus shelter a few blocks from the Dollar General.

The NOPD said the video was from between 6:30 a.m. and 7:10 a.m.

NOPD spokeswoman Remi Braden said the video was pretty distant and not very good quality, but that the suspect does carry himself in a distinct way and that the department hopes that might jog someone's memory.
