MARRERO (AP) — Jefferson Parish sheriff’s deputies are investigating a fatal shooting in Marrero.
According to a news release, deputies responded to a call of shots fired about 10 p.m. Monday.
When authorities arrived on the scene, they found a man lying unconscious next to a building in the New Chateaux apartment complex.
Deputies say 18-year-old Kendrick Richburg, of New Orleans, had been shot at least once to the chest, and he was pronounced dead on the scene.
Authorities said they found more than a dozen spent .40 caliber bullet casings near the Richburg’s body and scattered throughout the courtyard of the complex.
Detectives have yet to determine a motive or suspects in the case.
