NEW ORLEANS - Accused Bourbon Street shooter Trung Le has been indicted in Orleans Parish Criminal Court on one count of manslaughter and one count of attempted murder for his alleged involvement in the June 29 gunfight that left one woman dead and several others injured.

The 20-year-old Belle Chasse man is suspected to have exchanged fire with another man who has yet to be identified by law enforcement,.

Le was identified and captured by local police in Mississippi in the days following the shooting before his extradition to New Orleans for prosecution.

According to a statement from District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro, the DA's office must possess evidence that proves the charges against Le beyond a reasonable doubt before the institution of prosecution can move forward.

Brittany Thomas, a 21-year-old nursing student from Hammond, died just days after the shooting that occurred in the early morning hours of June 29.
