Arrest made in Bourbon Street shooting

An arrest was made in connection with the Bourbon Street shooting during Thanksgiving weekend, according to New Orleans Police.

NOPD Homicide Detectives, with support from the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force, Lafayette Police Department, ATF and Louisiana State Police obtained an arrest warrant for Jordan Clay, 20.

"You cannot commit crime in the city of New Orleans and get away with it," said NOPD Supt. Michael Harrison. "We will arrest you and you will face serious consequences."

Clay is wanted for second-degree-murder in connection to the shooting that happened on Bourbon Street Sunday morning.

Clay is currently in police custody in St. Martin Parish and will be extradited to New Orleans. 

The second suspect, who police have not yet identified publicly, is still wanted. The investigation is on-going.
