 Kenner - On February 17, 2019 at 9:10 AM officers responded to Ochsner Hospital in Kenner in reference to a gunshot victim who transported himself to the hospital.  The victim was shot in the arm and injuries were non-life threatening.

 The victim and a witness who was at the hospital, advised they were in a house located at 833 Champaigne Drive Kenner at 9:00 AM that same morning.  The victim and witness, friends of the suspectís family, were having a conversation when the suspect identified to be John Green, 17, Kenner injected himself into the conversation.  Green then produced a handgun and shot the victim without provocation.  The witness believed Green to still be at the Champaigne address and was armed. 

 In June 2018, a search warrant was executed at the same residence in reference to a New Orleans Police homicide investigation in which Green was a suspect.  Green was not charged in that homicide investigation.
