MARRERO , La., Feb. 25 (UPI) -- According to reports from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, a 20-year-old man was arrested charged with possession of derivatives of coca leaves after a doctor who was trying to treat him for a gunshot wound to his buttocks found a small bag containing 2.5 grams of cocaine.
Akili Bailey was also booked on two outstanding warrants for simple battery and simple criminal damage to property.
After receiving a call about a shooting on Sunday afternoon, police arrived and found Bailey with gunshot wounds to his buttocks, leg and foot. They also discovered 21-year-old Treon Florant with multiple gunshot wounds to his neck, leg and knee.
Florant was arrested for outstanding warrants for aggravated assault with a firearm and use of a firearm in connection with drug activity or violence.
When doctors at the LSU Interim Public Hospital in New Orleans tried to help Bailey, he resisted treatment and seemed to be "clenching his buttocks together,” the Times-Picayune reported.
The victims declined to answer questions about the shooting and no other arrests were made.
