NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans police have released surveillance video of a man believed to be responsible for a shooting Sunday morning in the French Quarter.

The shooting happened in the 800 block of Iberville Street at about 4:30 a.m.

According to NOPD spokesman Officer Frank Robertson, the 19-year-old victim told police he met with a "familiar subject" known as "T-Dog" and agreed to walk with him and another, unidentified man in a parking garage.

Once inside the garage, "T-Dog" pulled out a pistol and demanded cash, Robertson said.

When the teenager tried to flee, the two men shot him, and the victim later collapsed near Bourbon and Bienville streets. He is suffering from a gunshot wound to the back and shoulder.

The two gunmen fled toward Dauphine Street. You can see video of them fleeing above.

"T-Dog" is a black man in his mid-20s and about 6'6" tall. He has tattoos on his nose and face. He was last seen wearing a red shirt and red baseball cap.

The victim was unfamiliar with the second gunman, Robertson said. The victim described him as a black man about 6'3" tall. He is believed to be about 18 years old. He was last seen wearing a grey-hooded sweatshirt.

Drugs were found on the scene of the crime.
