The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office says a man was killed early Sunday in what appears to have been a drive-by shooting on the Bonnet Carre Spillway.

They found the victim dead in a shot-up, crashed car on I-10 West over the Bonnet Carre Spillway.

The westbound interstate over the Spillway was closed at I-310 South for several hours due to police activity at that location. Traffic was being diverted to I-310 South. 

According to officials, first responders arrived at the scene about 3:20 a.m., and found a crashed 2006 silver Chrysler Sebring with several bullet holes in it. A man was found dead inside the car. Others were said to have been taken to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

After an investigation of the scene, the sheriff's office said evidence on the victim’s vehicle indicates that there may have been a collision with a possibly white colored vehicle. 

The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office is looking for anyone with information as to a possible hit and run involving the victim’s vehicle today on I-10.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Jenni Barrette of the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office at (985)783-1135 or (985)783-6807. 

The I-10 was reopened around 10 a.m.




Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at 985-783-1135 or 985-783-6807.
