Police: Man who shot driver 18 times claims other crimes
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - An arrest warrant affidavit says a Georgia man accused of shooting a man in New Orleans 18 times told police he'd been involved in violent crimes in his hometown and in Alabama before the shooting.
News outlets report that 25-year-old Kwane Brown told police that when a driver behind him flashed his lights around 6:30 a.m. Sunday, he thought the driver was "after him" so he exited his car and shot the man numerous times. The man survived.
Police arrested Brown and charged him with attempted murder. Brown told police he "shot some people" Friday night in Columbus, Georgia, and then drove to Mobile, Alabama, and robbed a gas station at gunpoint.
He remained in jail Monday with bail set at $200,000. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney who could comment.
