Terrytown man, 63, found shot to death in Avondale


Avondale, La. - An overnight shooting claimed the life of a 63-year-old Terrytown man in Avondale Saturday, according to Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman Glen Boyd.

The victim is identified as Alvin Alexis, of Holmes Boulevard.

Deputies responding to a call of shots fired just before 1:30 a.m. found Alexis slumped over the center console of a late-model gray Nissan Altima in the driveway of an abandoned house at Capitol Drive and Cathedral Drive.

The engine was still running and Alexis, who was in the driver's seat, had sustained an gunshot wound to the upper body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Boyd said Alexis has a criminal history that includes second-degree murder, attempted armed robbery, crack possession, enticing a person to prostitute, contributing to a delinquency of a minor-sexual, illegal possession of a weapon, aggravated assault, illegal use of a weapon and possession of contraband in a correctional center.

Deputies have no suspect or motive. Anyone with information is asked to call the Investigations Bureau at (504) 364-5300 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
