New Orleans police have arrested a second suspect in the Bourbon Street shooting that left one person dead and nine others injured.

Acting on information gathered in the investigation, Louisiana State Police found and arrested Kavon Manuel at a home in the Lafayette area Friday.

Authorities say Manuel will be extradited to New Orleans to face a charge of second-degree murder and nine counts of attempted murder.

The arrest comes after New Orleans Police Chief Michael Harrison, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and state and federal law enforcement announced the Thursday night arrest of 20-year-old Jordan Clay as the other suspect in the incident.

Harrison said Clay and Manuel had an ongoing dispute and just happened to run into each other early Sunday on Bourbon Street.
