The suspected gunman in the Mother's Day parade shooting, 19-year-old Akein Scott, has finally been apprehended after being on the run for three days. According to authorities, Scott was arrested on Wednesday night in the Little Woods neighborhood of eastern New Orleans.
Scott, who was booked on 20 counts of attempted second-degree murder, is scheduled to have his first court appearance this morning. He was identified by authorities after surveillance footage and stills of the incident were released to the public.
It's worth noting that the teenager has a history of arrests, including a March arrest for illegally carrying a weapon while in possession of narcotics which resulted in a $15,000 bail. Scott went free on bail in late April.
