New Orleans Police say they have made an arrest in connection with last Sunday's Bourbon Street shooting.

Police have taken 20-year-old Trung T. Le of Belle Chasse (also known as "Joe") into custody. The NOPD had obtained an arrest for Le early Saturday morning, for one count of First Degree Murder in the death of Brittany Thomas, and nine counts of Attempted First Degree Murder.  

NOPD Chief Ronal Serpas announced that Le was taken into custody around 4:45 p.m. in Mississippi.

During last Sunday's shooting, police believe at least two suspects exchanged gunfire, wounding bystanders in the crowd, before fleeing the scene. Police believe Trung T. Le fired the first shot.

NOPD Homicide Detectives, Warrant Unit, members of the US Marshall’s Task Force and Deputies of the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office West Bank Violent Crime Task Force assisted the NOPD in searching for Trung Le.

Detectives are still requesting the public’s assistance in obtaining any photos or videos taken of the incident or any photos or videos taken from the French Quarter on the night of the incident.
