A sergeant with the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office was shot late Tuesday during what appeared to be a carjacking attempt.

Sgt. Delaney Jordan, 41, was off-duty and visiting with family members when he was shot in the back, according to a report by the New Orleans Advocate.

The shooting occurred Tuesday night around 11:20 p.m. in New Orleans East. According to Police, Jordan was in the 7800 block of Brevard Avenue when a man wearing a black ski mask and carrying a gun approached. Jordan was shot in the back once he stepped out of his car.

The gunman fled in a separate vehicle; police didn’t provide a description. No suspects have been named in the case.


Jordan is stationed at the city jail and is the second off-duty Sherrif’s Office sergeant to be shot in the past year.
