Hearing today for Bourbon St. shooting suspect
NEW ORLEANS - A defense attorney is pushing for a faster "probable cause" hearing for the only suspect arrested so far in a deadly Bourbon Street shooting.
The hearing for 20-year-old Trung Le is currently set for Aug. 26. But defense attorney Martin Regan filed a motion saying Le shouldn't face another month in jail before prosecutors show they have probable cause to keep him locked up.
A magistrate judge in New Orleans' criminal court will hear arguments on the matter Friday.
Le was captured in Mississippi on July 4 and later extradited to Louisiana in connection with the June 29 shooting spree in which a woman from Hammond was killed and nine other people were hurt.
He is being held without bail, booked with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.
