NEW ORLEANS (AP) -

New Orleans police want to track down a car linked to the Christmas Day murder of a 26-year-old man. 

Investigators said a dark-colored sedan was speeding near North Broad Street toward Orleans Avenue around the same time Christopher Watson was shot to death.

Detectives said the St. Augustine High School alumnus had just left a family holiday celebration and was on his way to work at the RTA when someone gunned him down in his car. As of Monday, no tips had been received in the case.

Police said at least 15 shots were fired in the area during the shooting. 

There's a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest.

If you know anything call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
