New Orleans Police Arrest 19-Year-Old After Morning Gunfire

New Orleans Police arrested a 19-year-old after getting a call Monday morning of shots fired near Derbigny and Frenchman streets.

Investigators say Blake Authement opened fire inside a home in the 1600 block of Touro St. for reasons that remain unknown. Authement then went outside and started threatening other people and continued to fire his handgun, hitting several vehicles.

When officers approached Authement, he pointed the handgun at them but did not fire, choosing to run away instead.

The officers quickly set up a perimeter and captured Authement in the 1800 block of N. Derbigny.

No one was hurt during the shooting and the investigation continues.
