HPD Homicide Division Sergeant P. J. LeBlanc and J. C. Padilla and Senior Police Officer A. Mares reported:
A fight started between two groups of males attending a party inside the Meridian Nightclub at 1503 Chatres. The fight then moved outside to a parking lot across the street from the nightclub. The suspect then approached Mr. Walls and shot him. Lt. Timmers, working an extra job at the nightclub, responded to the area of the parking lot where shots were fired and found Walls lying on his back. As Lt. Timmers attempted to help Walls, he was surprised by the suspect, who was ducked down next to a car in the parking lot. The suspect then stood up, shot Lt. Timmers, then fled on foot.
