MURDER INVESTIGATION IN HARVEY
Monday, May 20, 2013 11:21 PM
On May 20, 2013, around 10:15 PM our Second District Patrol officers responded to reports of gunfire and a subject shot in the area of 3700 Longleaf Drive in Harvey.
First responding officers located a number of spent shell casings on the ground next to a vehicle that was parked in front of 3721 Longleaf Drive. After conducting a canvass of the area, our officers followed a trail of blood leading across the street to an open field in the 2200 block of Alex Kornman. It was there, the officers located the body of a black male suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim, whose identity is being withheld pending next-of-kin notification was pronounced dead on the scene.
Our Homicide investigators have yet to determine a motive, nor have any suspects been identified. Anyone with information in this matter is asked to contact our Homicide Division at 504-364-5300 or Crimestoppers.
