Man Shoots Attacker In Self-Defense During Easter Encounter

An armed man who attacked another individual during an argument on Easter Sunday was left with egg on his face, as well as a bullet in his forearm.

New Orleans police are telling nola.com that 54-year-old Cornell Brown and an unidentified 68-year-old man began arguing early Sunday evening. After leaving the scene, Brown returned at around 8:30 p.m. with a revolver—which he then pointed at the older man. In turn, the man pulled out his own firearm and shot at Brown, hitting him in the right forearm.

The injured suspect was transported and treated at a nearby hospital, and is expected to be charged with aggravated assault. Police say the shooter fired in self-defense, and pending an investigation is not expected to be arrested.
