Man found shot, killed inside of vehicle in Harvey

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A man was found shot to death behind the wheel in Harvey.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. Monday on Keith Way in Harvey.

Responding officers located the body of a male victim sitting behind the wheel of a 2015 Volkswagen Jetta. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers say they first thought a car accident was the cause of death. However, while conducting a preliminary examination of the victim, deputies say it was determined he had a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Homicide investigators believe the victim, whose identity is unknown at this time, was driving the Volkswagen Jetta on Keith Way Drive when the vehicle left the roadway. At some point, the vehicle accelerated and began crashing through several fences in the area. The Jetta came to a stop in the back yard of a home on Melissa Drive.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Crimestopeprs at (504) 822-1111.
