From the LRPD this morning, which said this was 41st homicide of the year:
At 10:43 p.m. officers were called to 4717 W. 22d to a report of a shooting victim. Once on scene officers found a black male 40 - 50 years old suffering from one gun shot wound (location of wound is being withheld at this time).
Opio Hardin was arrested near the intersection of Charles Bussey and Minor Lane around 4:05a.m. He was taken into custody and charged with Murder 1st degree.
The report says Hardin went into the home on W. 22nd and shot Torence Nelson, 37, then fled.
