Robert Lavigne, (B/M DOB: 10-4-1993), identified by NOPD Homicide detectives as the perpetrator of the fatal shooting of Dalton Stone that occurred on September 4, 2018 in the 3000 block of Broadway Street, has been indicted by the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office on one count of second-degree murder.
Second District officers were dispatched to the location to a call of an aggravated battery by shooting. Upon arrival, they found a 25-year-old male later identified as Stone lying face up in the grass, in front of a residence. The victim was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He pronounced dead on the scene.
NOPD Homicide Unit detectives, with assistance from the NOPD’s Tactical Intelligence Gathering and Enforcement Response Unit (TIGER), the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, put together evidence to bring to Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro, who then brought the indictment against Lavigne.
Lavigne is currently incarcerated in Jefferson Parish on a parole violation. The NOPD Violent Offenders Warrant Squad is arranging for his extradition to Orleans Parish.
“The indictment of Robert Lavigne demonstrates the NOPD’s commitment, along with the support of our local, state, and federal partners, to tracking down the city’s most violent individuals, holding them accountable, and keeping them off the streets,” NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said. “This yet again an example of how NOPD’s Homicide Unit relentlessly pursues perpetrators of these violent acts.”
