The office of Orleans Parish Coroner Jeffrey Rouse has identified three men killed in separate shootings in New Orleans this week.
Peter Hill, 36, was shot to death early Sunday. Police said he was one of two men who sustained gunshot wounds in the 1800 block of St. Ann Street at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday. The other victim, who was also in his 30s, survived.
The coroner also identified a man whose death was not previously announced. Authorities said that Tyler Munster, 20, succumbed to his wounds on Christmas, the day after he was shot in New Orleans East.
Munster was at a gas station in the 5700 block of Crowder Boulevard when he started arguing with an unknown male at about 11 p.m. Sunday. The unknown male pulled out a gun and started shooting, police said. Munster, who was in the passenger seat of the vehicle, suffered a gunshot wound and was taken to a hospital, police said.
Finally, the coroner also identified a man killed in Central City on Christmas. The office said that Fernell Richmond, 41, was the man shot to death in the 3300 block of First Street.
Richmond was discovered inside a residence on the block suffering from multiple gunshot wounds at about 11:45 p.m. Monday, police said.
Police have not named suspects or described potential motives for any of the killings.
