Attempted murder count follows gunfire
New Orleans — Police have booked one man with attempted murder and are searching for his alleged accomplice after authorities say they fired 32 shots at a man last month.
Daryl Galle, 24, was booked with attempted first-degree murder and simple criminal damage to property on Friday and remains in custody. Police are also searching for “Clarrance” “Yank” Glen, 32.
Galle is conspiring with Glen to try to kill a 51-year-old man outside P.J.’s Bar in the 1500 block of Lafreniere Street on Oct. 28. The victim was shot three times in the incident and picked Galle out of a photo lineup as being with Glen. Police were able to identify the two suspects from the witness’ account and from a Crimestoppers’s tip, according to magistrate court records.
A preliminary report says the victim was at the bar when he noticed Glen. The victim believes Glenn killed the victim’s son in 2002 and suspected there would be trouble when he saw Glenn and Galle whispering, the report states. The victim left the bar and started running, but he says Glen and Galle pursued him outside and opened fire. According to the report, the two men chased the victim for blocks firing their weapons.
