A man armed with a shotgun robbed three 18-year-olds at a park Uptown on Tuesday night.
According to New Orleans police, the three victims were sitting in a park at the corner of Napoleon Avenue and Camp Street around 9:20 p.m. when a shotgun-armed man approached them and demanded their phone and money. The park is a few hundred feet from the New Orleans Police Department 2nd District Station at 4317 Magazine St., WWL-TV reported.
The victims complied, and the robber fled.
Cmdr. Paul Noel told WWL that police have developed a suspect, but wouldn't identify him. Detectives served a search warrant at the suspect's home and found a handgun, but not the shotgun used in the robbery.
No arrests have been made.
