New Orleans police arrested two men in connection to the Dec. 1 shooting on Canal Street that injured a dozen people, including the suspects.

The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) on Dec. 10 arrested 21-year-old Stafford Starks and then on Dec. 11 arrested 22-year-old LaBryson Polidore, who the NOPD said was injured in the shooting.

Polidore was arrested in the Baton Rouge area, according to the Associated Press.

Both men are suspects in the shooting that occurred among a crowd of people shortly before 3:30 a.m. in the 700 block of Canal St., the NOPD said. The incident happened on the Sunday following the 46th annual Bayou State Classic football game.

Ten people were initially reported injured at the scene, not including the shooters, the NOPD said.

The NOPD’s capture of Starks and identification of Polidore came with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals, FBI, ATF, the St. Mary and Iberville parish sheriff’s offices, the Louisiana State Police and tips submitted to Crimestoppers GNO.

The Iberville and St. Mary parish sheriff’s offices provided “vital assistance” during the investigation, the NOPD said.

Through a process of corroborating Crimestopper tips, the NOPD said, investigators issued arrest warrants for Starks and Polidore after they were positively identified as shooters in the incident.

Investigators learned that the shooting stemmed from a feud between Starks and Polidore in St. Mary Parish, the NOPD said.

The NOPD said search warrants served on Dec. 10 revealed two additional individuals who were involved in the shooting reported their injuries to a medical facility in St. Mary Parish.

One of them was identified as Polidore, who was shot in the foot. The other is a 23-year-old man, who sustained a gunshot wound to the leg.

Starks was booked into the St. Mary Parish jail just after 1 p.m. on Dec. 10. and currently awaits extradition to Orleans Parish. He faces charges of attempted second degree murder, illegal carrying and discharge of a weapon and obstruction of justice, the NOPD said.

Online records show that Polidore was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Jail on Dec. 11 with no bail posted.

The NOPD said Polidore faces 10 counts of attempted second degree murder, illegal carrying and discharge of a weapon and obstruction of justice.

The investigation is ongoing.

The NOPD requests that anyone with information regarding this incident to contact Homicide Unit detectives at 504-658-5300, or to call anonymously to Crimestoppers GNO at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 877-903-STOP.
