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.
Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive
I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.
Thank you, Scott Ploof Publisher Big Easy Magazine
