HARVEY, La. (AP) - Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies say a 36-year-old man was found dead near his Harvey apartment.
Col. John Fortunato, a sheriff's spokesman, says deputies responding to 911 calls Wednesday night found Ellis Lamont Simmons in the breezeway of the apartment building, suffering from multiple bullet wounds.
Fortunato said Simmons died before paramedics could treat him.
Deputies say neighbors heard numerous gunshots but did not provide any information on a suspect.
