The New Orleans Police Department on Thursday held a memorial service for it’s dancing horse, Ace, who recently died after a bout with colic, officials said.

City officials and several people gathered in the 100 block of Bourbon Street Thursday evening for an NOPD service honoring their four-legged colleague.

Ace joined the NOPD in 2006 and partnered with Officer Joseph Jones in 2012, and the two began their dancing routine shortly after that, according to the NOPD.

He was known for interacting with brass bands along Bourbon Street and would occasionally briefly pop into a club when he heard his favorite music playing before continuing his patrol duties.

A dreadlocked suspect is sought by New Orleans Police when a victim was left paralyzed on one side of their body after they were shot in the head Sunday near the intersection of North Rampart and Bienville streets.

The shooting occurred at about 5:37 p.m. when an unknown Black male suspect was walking with the victim and allegedly shot the victim in the head, and fled the scene, according to the NOPD on Tuesday.

Police officials described the suspect as having medium-length dreadlocked hair, facial hair and was last seen wearing grey and white Nike tennis shoes.
