A Zachary man was shot and killed early Sunday on Bradfield Avenue north of Scotlandville, police said.

Chadrick Lee, 22, was found lying on the ground with apparent gunshot injuries some time after 2 a.m., Police Department spokesman Sgt. Don Coppola Jr. said in a news release Sunday morning. Lee was pronounced dead at the scene in the 1900 block of Bradfield — the Village Green apartment complex just off Scotland Avenue and not far from the Baton Rouge Zoo.

Neighbors reported hearing several shots around 1 a.m. and said the shooting occurred in a parking lot toward the front of the complex. They said they didn’t know anything about who was involved or what happened, but said they were surprised and alarmed because the complex generally stays quiet.

Police had not identified any suspects or a motive as of Sunday morning. They asked anyone with information about the shooting to contact the Violent Crimes Unit at (225) 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
