Kwane Brown, 25

A 25-year-old man believed to be from Georgia was arrested after he allegedly shot another man multiple times in New Orleans' Central Business District Sunday morning, the New Orleans Police Department said.

The man also confessed to committing "very violent crimes" in Georgia and Alabama Saturday during his confession to Sunday's shooting, police said.

Kwane Brown, 25, was booked on a count of attempted first degree murder. A bail amount has not been set for Brown as of Sunday afternoon.

Police said Brown shot a 34-year-old man multiple times as he was seated in his vehicle in the 100 block of Decatur Street around 6:45 a.m. The victim drove himself to the 800 block of Iberville Street where he sought help. He was taken to a local hospital by EMS and is listed in stable condition.

Brown was found by NOPD Sgt. Sam Dupre a short time later in the 100 block of Convention Center Boulevard, police said. Louisiana State Police assisting at the scene recovered a Glock 9mm handgun with an extended magazine at the scene. 

The NOPD said their detectives are also contacting agencies where Brown allegedly committed other crimes and are assisting them as needed. Further information will be released once those agencies secure arrest warrants.

Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to contact NOPD's Eighth District detectives at 504-658-6080 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
