A man is dead after a late night shooting in Jefferson.
"Around 11:52 PM last night, our officers responded to reports of a subject shot near the intersection of South Causeway Blvd and Andover Street in Jefferson," Colonel John Fortunato said. "First responding officers located the body of a black male subject sufferings from multiple gunshot wounds lying in the street in the 1100 block of South Causeway."
He says the man died a short time later.
"Witnesses told investigators the victim was at a nearby bar at 1113 South Causeway prior to the shooting. The victim left the establishment, and while walking on South Causeway Blvd. was approached by three unidentified black male subjects. One of the subjects, who was armed with a handgun began firing at victim numerous times," according to Fortunato.
The colonel says the attackers then drove away.
"Homicide investigators have yet to determine a motive in this shooting, nor, have they been able to identify any of the suspects. Anyone with information in this matter is asked to contact our homicide division at 364-5300 or CRIMESTOPPERS (504-822-1111)."
