A 63-year-old man was shot to death early Saturday morning in Avondale, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said.
About 1:25 a.m., neighbors called 911 to report hearing at least two gunshots in the 200 block of Capitol Drive, said Glen Boyd, a sheriff’s office spokesman.
Deputies who arrived on the scene found Alvin Alexis of Gretna slumped over the middle console of a Nissan Altima that had been backed into the driveway of an abandoned home at 229 Capitol Drive.
Paramedics pronounced Alexis dead on the scene. He had been shot multiple times.
Boyd said the car’s lights were on and the engine was running when Alexis was shot.
Investigators did not immediately have a suspect or motive in the shooting.
Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call the sheriff’s office’s Investigations Bureau at (504) 364-5300 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
