FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
08/29/2014

NEW ORLEANS, LA, - NOPD arrested two local men after they were involved in a brawl that quickly turned violent in the 100 block of South Rampart Street earlier this evening.

Around 3:45pm, officers were called to investigate a call of a male suffering from a gunshot wound. Officers arrived and found 23-year-old Michael Sanders suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg and an abrasion to his head. According to Sanders he was walking in the block when he was approached by 29-year-old Ronald Davis and two unknown accomplices. Both Sanders and Davis immediately were involved in a physical altercation. During the altercation the unknown male accomplice attired in all dark clothing struck Sanders with a pistol and fired several shots at him. The unknown suspect then fled the scene. Davis fled towards nearby Tulane Avenue with Sanders following him firing multiple shots one striking him in the leg.

Both Davis and Sanders were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Both men have been treated and released from the hospital.

Michael Sanders was booked into Central Lock up and charged with Illegal Carrying of a Firearm and Possession of Stolen Property. The weapon he used in the shooting was reported stolen out of Jefferson Parish. Ronald Davis was charged and booked with Principal to Aggravated Battery by Shooting.

Two suspects remain at large. The first suspect nicknamed “Scully,” is described as an African American male, dark complexion, 5’6” to 5’7 in height, dark shirt and light colored pants.

Here’s an excerpt from the end of my Katrina story that runs during today’s 5pm news

"But despite all the progress, there are still painful reminders that New Orleans’ recovery is a marathon.. and not a sprint.

The former Six Flags site still sits abandoned and in overgrown disrepair.

Blight is still a problem in many parts of the city.

Streets can be a nightmare.

But with pain comes progress. New Orleans, 9 years post-Katrina, is in many ways better than New Orleans pre-Katrina. And that’s what makes the rebuilding process continue to thrive.”

Loyola announcement that Ronal Serpas is joining its faculty

Dear Members of the Faculty and Staff,

I am pleased to announce that law enforcement leader Ronal W. Serpas, Ph.D., has accepted a faculty position with the Department of Criminal Justice at Loyola University New Orleans.

Serpas returns to Loyola’s faculty after teaching graduate and undergraduate courses from 1993 to 2001. He most recently retired as superintendent from the New Orleans Police Department, and prior to his tenure there, he served as the police chief for the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department. Before that, Serpas served as chief of the Washington State Patrol.

Serpas’ more than 30 years of experience will offer our students the real-world understanding needed to prepare them for careers ranging from police and correctional officers to FBI agents and U.S. Marshals. I want to extend my thanks to William Thornton, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Criminal Justice, for his efforts to facilitate Serpas joining the faculty.

This position is not new, but is a replacement position because of recent openings due to attrition in the Department of Criminal Justice. Please join me in welcoming Serpas back to Loyola.

Sincerely,

Marc Manganaro, Ph.D.
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
