NEW ORLEANS — The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office says they arrested a New Orleans man in connection to a homicide homicide in the Briar Lake area of Lacombe.

20-year-old Karneilius Coleman was arrested Friday with assistance from the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Apprehension Task Force and ATF, according to a press release. 

The Sheriff’s Office believes he was involved in a shooting that killed a man on the 61000 block of Brittany Drive on March 18. 

Kenner Police had a warrant to arrest Coleman for an unrelated crime, and was booked into the Orleans Parish Prison as a fugitive on Friday afternoon, according to a press release. Once he was in custody, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office office says they quickly secured an arrest warrant on him for one count of second-degree murder.
