Cops: Driver killed after getting off I-10

Cops in New Orleans say a driver exiting the I-10 was shot to death after midnight.

"Homicide Detectives are investigating the fatal shooting of an unidentified man. The Incident occurred just before 1am," Officer Frank Robertson said in a news release.  "This incident occurred at the interstate 10 west off ramp @ Franklin Avenue."

Police say the motive is not clear, but it doesn't appear anything was stolen.

"According to witnesses, the victim exited the interstate in a Silver Mercedes Convertible. The victim stopped at the intersection for the red light when unknown gunman walked up and opened fire on the vehicle. The victim was shot multiple times behind the steering wheel. Officers arrived and found the unresponsive victim still seated in the driver's chair. The man died on the scene from multiple gunshot wounds to his body."

Robertson says the suspects fled in another vehicle.
