Police responded to a fatal shooting early Saturday in Gentilly.
Garelle Smith, 29, was shot about 1:30 a.m. in the 3500 block of Hamburg Street. Smith died from gunshot wounds to his head and chest, Gagliano said.
Smith, who appeared in court last week and pleaded not guilty to a drug and firearms charge, has a history of dodging murder charges before they got close to trials. He was accused in the 2003 murder of rapper Soulja Slim, also known as James Tapp, and the 2006 murder of Mandell Duplessis, who was killed at a FEMA trailer that had turned into the scene of an armed robbery by drug dealers, police said.
Police have not released any information on a suspect or motive in Smith’s death.
