Bourbon St. Shooting Suspect Now In Custody In New Orleans

Bourbon Street Shooter Suspect
Harrison County S.O.

The extradition of Trung T. Le from Mississippi was expected to take several weeks to complete. That transfer of law enforcement’s prime suspect in a shooting on Bourbon Street in New Orleans that killed one and injured nine happened very quickly on Saturday.

Mississippi Lieutenant Governor Tate Lee signed the papers to transfer Le back to Louisiana. The Lt. Governor was acting on Governor Phil Bryant’s behalf since Mr. Bryant was out of the state.

Le is currently being held in the Orleans Parish Jail without bond on one count of first degree murder and nine counts of attempted first degree murder in his alleged role in a shooting that took place in the crowded French Quarter of New Orleans on June 28th. That shooting that was captured on surveillance cameras took the life of 21 year old Brittany Thomas of Hammond. Thomas was laid to rest in Ponchatula yesterday.

New Orleans Police have still not identified the suspect that Le was allegedly shooting at that night. Le, a resident of Belle Chase Louisiana, had been held in the Harrison County Jail in Gulfport Mississippi since his arrest in connection with the shooting. He had refused to sign a waiver of extradition at the time.

Le will next face a court hearing on August 8th in New Orleans.
