NEW ORLEANS — The man accused of killing a waiter outside of Mandina’s Restaurant is now back in New Orleans.

Kyron Fazande, 22, was extradited from Texas and booked into the Orleans Justice Center on Monday.

Fazande faces a Second-Degree Murder charge in the fatal shooting of Hilbert Walker III, 23, back in April.

Detectives say Fazande and another unknown suspect gunned down Walker, killing him and injuring a Chicago tourist when she was struck by a stray bullet while dining inside the famous Mid-City restaurant. Fazande also faces an Attempted Second-Degree Murder charge for the injured woman.

Fazande was arrested near Houston where he is also accused of killing 15-year-old boy days after the Mandina's killing. Detectives have not yet said if they found a motive for Walker's murder. Fezande is being held in the Orleans Parish prison without bond.
