A man who was shot in the face on Friday afternoon in the Marigny died over the weekend, New Orleans authorities said Monday.
Police have said that the victim — identified as 29-year-old Troy Cooks — was shot by Crystal Baumann, who was jailed Friday on a count of aggravated battery but could now face a more serious charge.
According to investigators, Baumann and Cooks were arguing about 12:30 p.m. in the 1900 block of North Rampart Street when she pulled a gun out and fired one bullet into his face.
First responders took Cooks to the hospital for treatment, but he died Saturday, New Orleans Coroner Dr. Jeffrey Rouse's office said.
Meanwhile, officers took Baumann to the headquarters of the 8th Police District, which patrols the Marigny. She declined to speak with investigators and was booked with Cooks' shooting.
A neighbor told The New Orleans Advocate on Friday that Baumann and Cooks had been locked in a lengthy argument when the gunfire erupted. Police acknowledged the suspect and victim appeared to have been in a domestic relationship but didn't elaborate.
Cooks was one of several victims from recent slayings whom Rouse's office identified Monday.
The coroner's office also said 24-year-old Je'Ryan Edwards was the man killed in a shooting Saturday night that left five others wounded at the corner of Forstall and Burgundy streets in the Lower 9th Ward.
Louis Henry, 29, was the man who was fatally shot in the 3300 block of Gen. Meyers Avenue in Algiers on Saturday. And 24-year-old Keaton Wills was shot to death in the 7000 block of Yorktown Drive in New Orleans East, Rouse's office said.
At least 15 people have been killed in New Orleans between Oct. 26 and Monday morning, making it an exceptionally deadly 18-day period in the city.
