Police said Demontre Smith, 17, tried to shoot a 16-year-old male Sunday in the 7200 block of Yorktown Drive in New Orleans East.

Police said Smith approached the victim and got into a fight with him, then pulled out a small pistol. According to police, Smith tried to shoot the younger teen but the gun jammed.

Police intend to book Smith on one count of aggravated assault.
