VIOLET, La. -- St. Bernard deputies have arrested a man in connection with a shooting that left a man dead Tuesday night.

The shooting happened at about 8 p.m. in the 3100 block of Daniel Drive.

Deputies say they found 19-year-old Truy Jones with multiple gunshot wounds lying on the lawn in front of a home. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

A man who moved to St. Bernard Parish two months ago from Plaquemines Parish, 18-year-old Grid Reddick, was booked Wednesday evening with second-degree murder.

Reddick has no previous criminal record, according to Sheriff James Pohlmann.

Sheriff Pohlmann said he wouldn't go into a possible motive or other details of the investigation at this time.

This was the third murder of the year in St. Bernard Parish.
