Convicted felon who was shot, arrested

 Kenner - On Friday, January 26, 2018, Mark Duncan, 28, of Laplace was arrested for the crimes of illegal possession of a firearm by a person convicted of certain felonies, and illegal discharge of a firearm. 

 Duncanís arrest is due to a shooting that took place on Tuesday, January 23, 2018, in the 2800 block of Fayette Street, in which the Kenner Police Department responded to a report of gunshots.  Upon officersí arrival, they found a scene which consisted of bullet casings and broken glass.  While investigating this scene, Duncan subsequently arrived at Ochsner Medical Center where he was dropped off.  Duncan had sustained 4 gunshots.   Duncan initially told detectives that he was on Fayette Street minding his own business when gunfire suddenly erupted.  Duncan claimed that he did not know who shot him or why. 

 Detectives were able to obtain evidence which showed Duncan appeared to be waiting for something or someone in the 2800 block of Fayette Street.  A white truck arrived that Duncan approached and interacted with for over a minute.  Suddenly gunfire erupted and Duncan was wounded; however, also visible was Duncan had his own firearm and was shooting at the truck and / or occupants.   Duncanís criminal history revealed that in April 2013, he was convicted of the crime of use of a firearm while in possession of a controlled dangerous substance, which prevents Duncan from possessing a firearm for a period of ten years.   

 Subsequent interviews with Duncan, Duncan claims that the occupants of the truck shot him during a robbery / drug transaction.  The shooting still remains under investigation, while the Kenner Police Department attempts to locate the white truck and occupants.    

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone with information concerning this shooting or Mark Duncan to call Kenner Police Detective Devin Diedling at (504) 712-2304 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111. 

 At the time of this press release, Duncan remains in custody, no bond has been set.
