(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.
