HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION IN MARRERO
Sunday, February 02, 2014 09:06 PM
Sheriff Newell Normand reports, this evening, shortly after 7 PM, our officers responded to reports of gunshots in the 1000 block of Dimarco Drive in Marrero.
As units were responding to Dimarco Drive, they were flagged down at Westwood Drive and the West Bank Expressway. At that location, they found a black male suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to University Hospital where he is currently in critical condition.
The units that arrived on Dimarco discovered the body of a black male, suffering from a gunshot wound lying in the courtyard of 1029 Dimarco. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
A trail of blood leading away from the courtyard on Dimarco, and, in the direction of the West Bank Expressway, have Homicide investigators believing both victims were shot at the Dimarco location.
Anyone with information in this investigation, is asked to call Homicide Detective Jean Lincoln at 504-364-5300 or CRIMESTOPPERS.
