  • Prince Patton was shot to death in Carondelet
Another homicide, and not a lot of details available to the public.

Last night at 12:45 am, a 25-year-old named Prince Patton (described as a black male) was in the 900 block of Bates Street in Carondelet.

He was talking to another black male, whom witnesses describe only as a thin, about 5' 10" tall, dressed all in black.

Several shots rang out.

The perp then hopped into a white SUV with tinted windows and illuminated running boards.

When the cops arrived, they found Patton's body.

He has a listed address on the 7800 block of Tennessee Place, about two miles to the southwest.

Patton was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

The investigation, as always, is ongoing.
