JPSO probes shooting that left 81 bullet shells

MARRERO, La. (AP) - The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that left a 58-year-old man dead in front of a Marrero home.

Sheriff Newell Normand says the victim was identified as Emeal Washington.

A witness says Washington had just walked to his car at about 2 a.m. Monday to get a cigarette when three men - two wearing dark clothing and hoodies - walked toward him. The witness says he yelled to Washington to run but the gunman fired, striking Washington multiple times.

Normand says investigators found 81 spent shell casings at the scene from various caliber of weapons.

There are no known suspects at the moment and investigators haven't determined a motive. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
