Bourbon Street shooting suspect will remain jailed

Updated:
NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Bond has been set for the only suspect identified so far in the Bourbon Street shooting.

Investigators said Trung Le is one of two gunmen who opened fire on a crowd of people on Bourbon Street in June. One woman died and nine people were injured.

Bond was set at $4.5 million on nine counts of attempted murder. No bond was set on a first-degree murder charge, essentially meaning that Le will remain in jail. 

Trung Le was extradited Saturday from Mississippi after the state's lieutenant governor signed a warrant from Gov. Bobby Jindal. The 20-year-old has been in a Gulfport jail since his July 4 arrest after refusing to sign an extradition waiver.

The Orleans Parish district attorney's office said Le was picked up in Mississippi Saturday at 10a.m. and booked into OPP around 1:15 p.m.

Police are still searching for the second gunman in the case.
