Coroner Jeffrey Rouse has identified the victim of a homicide in St. Roch as James Lawhorn Sr., 53.
Rouse said Lawhorn died of a gunshot wound at Franklin Avenue and North Prieur Street about 12:10 a.m. Monday.
Police responding to Lawhorn’s killing subsequently shot and arrested a teenager whose car was seen fleeing from the scene. Kevin Greathouse, 17, has been booked on a count of aggravated assault of a police officer after allegedly driving his car toward a state trooper, but police have not named him a suspect in the killing of Lawhorn.
Rouse also formally identified Gerald Morgan, 17, as the victim of a shooting on Boeing Street in New Orleans East on Tuesday that also wounded a 4-year-old boy. Relatives had previously named Morgan.
