(Newser) – After avoiding police for three days, Akein Scott, a suspected gunman in Sunday's parade shooting, was arrested last night. Scott, 19, was the shooter in surveillance footage of the attacks, police say; he's the only suspect police have announced publicly, though they earlier cited three gunmen, the Times-Picayune notes. At the time of the attack, Scott was out of jail on a $15,000 bond, WWLTV reports; his charges included weapons and drug possession and resisting an officer.

Well, Akein, you have earned yourself "three hots and a cot" for the foreseeable future. Hope it turns out you really are as bad-assed as you think you are, sport, 'cause you're about to find yourself locked up with the REAL bad asses for a lonnnnnnng time. Too bad, dumb ass.
