The arrest brings to five the number of people arrested so far in the case
New Orleans police have arrested who they believe is the second gunman in a merciless carjacking and murder in an Algiers parking lot last month.
Officers picked up 17-year-old Milton Wilson Thursday morning at a relative’s apartment in the 12000 block of the I-10 Service Road. Wilson is accused of carjacking and gunning down 27-year-old Fernando Eyzaguierre on November 25, as he sat in his car in the 5100 block of General De Gaulle.
Surveillance video obtained shows three men ordering Eyzaguierre from his car at gunpoint. Eyzaguierre offered no resistance when he got out of his vehicle, but was shot to death. The suspects then got in the car and took off, police said.
“In my 30-plus years of policing, I’ve seen countless videos of people being attacked. But this video was particularly disturbing, as the victim in no way put up a fight, but was still fired on multiple times”, said Superintendent Ronal Serpas. “These killers were heartless, and our Homicide division did not rest until they had all suspects in custody.”
Wilson is booked with First Degree Murder and Carjacking, as are the other two suspects who are apparently in the video - 20-year-old Marke Simmons and 17-year-old Jaroid Washington.
Washington was arrested by Waveland, Mississippi Police a short time after the victim’s abandoned car was recovered in Waveland.
Two other arrests made in this case include Desmonique Reed, who was charged with Accessory After the Fact of First Degree Murder as well as Accessory After the Fact of Carjacking. Erin Joseph Doucet was also arrested and charged with Principal to First Degree Murder and Principal to Carjacking.
