NEW ORLEANS, La. -- The New Orleans Police Department has released the identity of a person of interest in the murder of 11-year-old Arabian Gayles, who was killed early Monday morning while sleeping at a home in the 1300 block of General Ogden Street in the Carrollton area.

Police say a stray bullet hit the girl in the head and she later died at the hospital.

Now police want to question 33-year-old Keith Ward.

Detectives believe he may have information on that case.

'We believe that Keith Ward was on the scene and we have an opportunity to talk to him and we want Keith to give us that chance,' Serpas said.
