Off-Duty NOPD Sergeant Finds Own Stolen Car

NEW ORLEANS, L.A. Ė An off-duty sergeant with the New Orleans Police Department arrested a man who allegedly car-jacked his daughterís vehicle at gunpoint.

Paris Sumas, 17, was arrested and charged with possession of a stolen vehicle Saturday and remains in custody pending further charges.

According to NOPD Spokesman Officer Gary Flot, the sergeant's vehicle was stolen from his daughter at gunpoint Friday in a carjacking in the 6700 block of Virgillian Street.

The unnamed police sergeant, spotted Sumas next to his daughterís stolen car at a gas station and called for backup.

While the sergeant waited for other units to arrive, three other people exited the gas station and got into the stolen vehicle, Flot said.

The sergeant, armed with his service revolver, stopped Sumas as he tried to get into the vehicle. A struggle ensued, and the sergeantís gun went off. No one was injured in the shooting as the three other suspects fled the scene on foot.

Sumas was taken to a local-area hospital where he was treated for a cut to his head and was later released back into police custody.

The police sergeant was not hurt during the incident, according to Flot.

During a search of the vehicle, NOPD officers recovered a handgun. Detectives investigating the incident are trying to determine how the teenage suspect got a hold of the gun.

Because the sergeantís gun was fired during the incident, the Public Integrity Bureau is currently reviewing the surveillance video from the incident.

It was unclear at the time of this report, whether Sumas has a lawyer or if an arraignment date had been set.
