Murder in Metairie



Sheriff's deputies responded to a home in the quiet Willowdale neighborhood of Metairie following a report of shots fired.  

Arriving just after 11pm, deputies located a male who sustained a number of gunshots wounds.  

The victim was pronounced dead on the scene.  

Homicide investigators have maintained quiet in the case as they are confirming the victims identity and notifying next of kin before releasing his name.  

A release from the Sheriffs says investigators are still working to uncover a motive for the crime.  

The department is asking for the public's help in the case.  They request if anyone with information about the case to contact the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Homicide Section at 504-364-5300 or contact Crimestoppers.
