NEW ORLEANS -- A man was shot in the head by a New Orleans police officer early Monday morning during a traffic stop, but the NOPD never mentioned the officer-involved shooting in its daily roundup of major police items.

The attorney for the victim, Nandi Campbell, confirmed to Eyewitness News that her client has been in the hospital since the shooting. He was recently released from the intensive care unit with staples in his forehead, Campbell said.

While the wound doesn’t appear to be serious, Campbell said she is troubled that the police department did not publicly announce the police shooting, referring to it instead as a signal 108, “officer needs assistance.”

In the gist of the incident in the NOPD’s major offense log, the item does not mention that an officer fired shots or left a suspect wounded.
