Police say just two days before Christmas, Cowart fired shots outside Rouses Supermarket in the CBD. Although not the intended target, Montrell was struck by gunfire, ultimately killing him.
Just after the new year, Cowart was arrested in Houston in connection to the murder. According to the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office, a bond amount has not been set for the murder charge.
