"At approximately 09:25 a.m., Sunday, August 25, 2013, the Kenner Police Department received a telephone call reporting gunshots and a subject down in the 1900 block of Roosevelt Boulevard, in Kenner," Sergeant Brian McGregor said in a news release.  "Officers responding to the location found Derrick Garner, 24, of Kenner, had been shot."
