TERRYTOWN, LA (WVUE) - A Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office employee who was found shot to death in her personal vehicle Monday morning in Terrytown has been identified as a JPSO sergeant.

Tracey Marshall, 47, was found in her truck in the 2300 block of Ashley Drive, according to the Jefferson Parish coroner. The JPSO said Marshall was a sergeant assigned to the courts as a bailiff. She joined the JPSO in February of 2005.

On Monday at about 9:45 a.m., the 911 Center received a call from a woman requesting that an officer check on a truck in the the parking lot of 2312 Ashley Drive. The caller said the truck's window was broken and hair could be seen hanging out. First responding officers located a 2010 Ford four-door pick-up truck. Marshall's body was found in the driver's seat. She had been shot multiple times and was pronounced dead on the scene.

According the authorities, neighbors heard shots Sunday at about 9:45 p.m. in the neighborhood adjacent to where Marshall was found, but responding officers didn't find anything.
