Final suspect in New Orleans park shooting turns himself in

NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans police say the final suspect identified in last month's park shooting that left 17 wounded is now in custody.

Police spokesman Tyler Gamble says 22-year-old Shawn Ruffin surrendered to authorities Sunday night.

Ruffin is the last of nine suspects identified in last month's shooting, which came after a neighborhood parade.

Online jail record did not list an attorney for Ruffin.

Last week, authorities cleared the first suspect, Joseph "Moe" Allen, of all charges when video showed he was in Texas at the time of the shooting. Another suspect, Michael "Mack" Allen, has proclaimed his innocence via his attorney during a bond hearing last week.

New Orleans police have not ruled out the possibility of additional suspects or arrests.
