NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police say a stray bullet killed a man inside a Bourbon Street business early Sunday morning.

Police arrested 24-year-old Daphney D. Jackson, charging her with manslaughter, obstruction of justice and illegal use of weapons.

Police say they found the man dead with a gunshot wound to the chest when they arrived.

The victim hasn’t been named. Police said his name would be released after his family was notified.

Jackson was detained at the scene and arrested after questioning. She remains jailed pending the posting of $450,000 bail, and it’s unclear if she has a lawyer to speak for her.
