Bourbon Street shooting suspect indicted



A grand jury today indicted the suspect in the June 29 Bourbon Street shootings one count each of manslaughter and attempted murder.

Prosecutors say Trung Le was engaged in a gun battle with an as-yet unidentified man. As a result, 21-year-old Brittany Thomas was killed and several others were injured.

"While the arrest was based upon a finding of probable cause, the DA's office must possess evidence that proves the charges beyond a reasonable doubt prior to instituting prosecution," said District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro.

New Orleans Police are still searching for the second suspect.
