New Orleans, La. -
A 28-year-old Delgado student, described as a hard-working young man, is New Orleans' first murder victim of 2013.
NOPD says a family member found Antonio Llovet, shot several times and deceased, on New Year's Day in his Dreux Street home in Gentilly. Investigators worked behind crime tape at the home in the 2300 block of Dreux.
"He was the type of person who would give you the last shoes on his feet if you needed shoes," said Lonnie Ventress, who called Llovet his best friend.
Ventress says he saw Llovet for the last time on New Year's Eve. He left about 10:30, according to Ventress.
The victim worked as a waiter for almost a year at Bayona in the French Quarter. News of his murder hit the staff hard.
"When I hired him I was excited to have him because he had a lot of energy and personality," said Bayona manager Shannon Friscoe through tears.
The restaurant staff described him as a hard worker who was trying to become a petroleum engineer.
"His daddy was from Cuba and his mother from El Salvador," Ventress said.
His parents live near Antonio's double and they watched as investigators combed the crime scene, marking a dramatic end to their son's life.
