Two men arrested for discharging firearms at midnight New Year's Eve

Kenner – William Dunn 21, Kenner and Henry Warner 17, Kenner were arrested shortly after midnight New Year’s Eve night for Illegal Discharge of Firearms (City misdemeanor charges).

 Shortly after midnight at approximately 12:05 in the morning of January 1, 2019 Officer Chad Hoffmann was on patrol in the 3100 block of Washington Street when he heard what he recognized to be gunfire.  Officer Hoffman immediately exited his patrol car and began searching for where the gunfire was coming from.  Officer Hoffmann located a crime scene in the rear yard of 3106 Bainbridge Street, Kenner.  Approximately one hundred and forty spent 12 gauge shotgun shells and approximately forty six spent .40 caliber shell casings were found scattered throughout the rear yard.  The rear of the house and a dog house in the backyard had numerous bullet holes.

 The residence was vacant and the owner of the residence, who lived nearby, arrived and inquired as to the presence of police.  The owner suspected her son may be hiding in the house and called for her son, Will Dunn, to exit the residence.  Dunn exited the residence, denied any involvement in discharging firearms and claimed no one else was in the house. Officers obtained a search warrant and later located Henry Warner hiding in the attic.  Two 12 gauge shotguns, a .40 caliber handgun and a .25 caliber semi-automatic pistol were recovered from inside the house.

 Both, Will Dunn and Henry Warner were charged with violating one count of City of Kenner Ordinance 7-165 Discharging a Firearm.
