NOPD: Man fires shot at clerk after being told to wear mask


The New Orleans Police Department is hoping you can help them find a man who fired a gun at people who told him to put on a mask while in a convenience store. Police say the incident happened at Brother's Food Mart in the 7000 block of Bullard Avenue shortly before midnight last night.

"The subject got angry when store employees told him he was required to wear a mask while inside of the store," police said. "The subject exited the store, went to his vehicle and obtained a gun. Then, the subject re-entered the store and shot multiple rounds at employees before fleeing in a black Buick sedan."

Police did not report any injuries.
