$1.7M bond set for man in gunfight that wounded 17
NEW ORLEANS - Bond has been set at $1.7 million for a man police accuse of participating in a gunfight that wounded 17 people at a New Orleans playground after a neighborhood parade.
Online records show 32-year-old Joseph "Moe" Allen's bond was set Sunday in New Orleans Magistrate Court. He's also being held without bond on an otherwise unspecified out-of-state warrant.
Defense attorney Kevin Boshea didn't immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
Records show Allen was booked with 17 counts of attempted murder in the Nov. 22 shooting at Bunny Friend Playground. A preliminary hearing is scheduled Dec. 8.
Police spokesman Tyler Gamble says Allen turned himself in Saturday, a day after being identified as a suspect.
Police say they believe several others were involved in the shooting and are seeking any information people might have.
