Man found shot to death in Harvey apartment


New Orleans -- Detectives with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office are investigating a shooting that left a 38-year-old man dead. The incident occurred Sunday morning in an apartment located in the 2800 block of Destrehan Avenue in Harvey. The victim has been identified as 38-year-old Rene O' Quin.

Police say that the 911 center received a call from a woman around 10:22 a.m. stating that she woke up and noticed that her fiancee was lying in a pool of blood in their bed. Detectives found that O' Quin was suffering from a gunshot wound to the head and originally believed that the wound was self-inflicted. After further investigation, detectives determined that O' Quin was shot by someone in the same apartment building.

Detectives are currently interviewing an individual who lives in the building to try and determine where the bullet that struck O' Quin came from. If you have any information that could help investigators, you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or the JPSO Homicide Division at 504-364-5300.
