NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A man has been arrested in the shooting deaths of two men on Fat Tuesday in New Orleans more than four years ago.

Police said they've arrested 35-year-old Michael Angeletta and charged him with second-degree murder.

Police haven't said what led them to name Angeletta as a suspect.

Police say 25-year-old Deron Hitchens and 29-year-old Kendrell Fields were shot during a concert March 4, 2014, at Mardi Gras World.

Police said both men had been shot several times and bullets hit several unoccupied vehicles. Investigators found a handgun and bullet casings at the scene.

Officials said at the time the shooting didn't appear to be random.

It wasn't known if Angeletta has an attorney yet.
