New, 1 comment

Detectives have identified and arrested the psycho who shot the general manager of Dat Dog while trying to rob the Freret Street hot dog mecca on Monday morning, reports the Uptown Messenger. Nathaniel "Li'l Brother" Jones is barely an adult, clocking in at just 19 years old. Says Robert Morris, "police officials credit members of the Freret community with giving them the information they needed to identify him." According to the Police Report:

Jones entered through the back door of the restaurant in the 5000-block of Freret Street on Monday morning at around 10. He was wearing a bandana over his face and carrying a handgun. Jones tried unsuccessfully to rob the business, wound up shooting the restaurant manager in his left shoulder, and finally took off empty-handed.

Officers have relocated Jones from Kenner to Central Lock up. He has previous arrests for gun possession, theft, possession of stolen property and flight from an officer. He's now charged with attempted murder and attempted armed robbery.
