Shooter claims he killed man for trying to steal his bike
NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans police say a 31-year-old New Orleans man is accused of shooting and killing an unarmed man in his front yard.
The arrest warrant alleges that Bradley Parvez called police Thursday morning to report that someone was trying to steal his bicycle, and called shortly afterward to say he'd shot the man.
Police say that when officers arrived, Parvez had a lawyer with him and declined to give a statement.
He was booked with second-degree murder. His bond is set at $250,000.
The victim's name was not released.
Sgt. Nicholas Gernon, commander of the NOPD Homicide Unit, says the 35-year-old man was unarmed and it was not clear whether he was trying to commit a crime.
The warrant says the house showed no signs of forced entry.
