Default Innocent WF, 36 killed in Bourbon Street shooting by negro with long rap sheet


Innocent woman killed in Bourbon Street shooting was New Orleans mom, nurse, 'great person'

Updated Feb 24, 2019 at 12:02 pm

Friends of a local registered nurse and mother are mourning after she was fatally shot on Bourbon Street early Sunday during a fight that didnít involve her.

Julie Couvillon, 36, had spent Saturday at Carnival parades with friends before heading to Bourbon for a rare late night out
, said her close friend and former co-worker, Rosaleen Brown.

Brown said she and countless others were heartbroken to learn Couvillon was the woman who authorities say when killed when gunfire erupted during a struggle at a Willieís Chicken Shack between a security guard and a rowdy patron the guard was trying to toss out.


Suspect in fatal Bourbon Street shooting arrested; he has long rap sheet but no past gun violence

Online court records show Barnes has a lengthy record of arrests and convictions, though none of his prior crimes appeared to involve gun violence. However, he was in court just over a month ago to be arraigned on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender. He pleaded not guilty in a case for which he was out on a $5,000 bond, and he was due back in court Monday.

Barnes was required to register as a sex offender after pleading guilty to carnal knowledge of a juvenile, admitting he had sex with a 15-year-old girl in 2011, according to Jefferson Parish court records. He received a two-year prison sentence.

Barnes' other interactions with local law enforcement date back to at least 1997, when he received probation in Jefferson Parish after pleading guilty to attempted simple burglary.

He was booked with disturbing the peace and battery of a school teacher at the age of 17 in 1999 in New Orleans. The resolution of those charges was unclear.

In 2002, he was booked with burglary and possession of stolen things. He was convicted and sentenced to three years in prison on those charges.

He had later arrests and convictions for marijuana possession, being a felon in possession of a firearm and bail jumping, the records show. In 2012, he pleaded guilty to the firearm charge and was sentenced to five years in prison.
