NO police charge man in fatal shooting

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say they have arrested a man for shooting another man multiple times then fleeing on a bicycle with a gun in hand.

Officers arrested 19-year-old Michael Matthews at around 4:15 Sunday morning and charged him with murder in the death of 29-year-old Kevin Stewart.

Police said Monday in a news release that Matthews shot Stewart shortly after 1:30 p.m. on May 1 as Stewart was standing on street. Witnesses told police that a man rode off on a bicycle, one of his hands was on the handlebars and his other hand held the gun.

Matthews was as booked on one count of second degree murder. It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
