NOPD investigating early Friday homicide in New Orleans East

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

New Orleans Police are investigating the shooting death of a man early Friday morning.

Around 5 a.m., an unidentified man was found shot to death in the 4600 block of America Street in New Orleans east.

Police say the victim suffered a single gunshot wound to the head. He was carrying no identification, making it more difficult for investigators to quickly identify him.

Investigators believe the man was killed at the scene and they are looking for a suspect.

Shocked neighbors close to the scene, who did not want to speak on record for fear of retribution, say that even though they were awake at 5 a.m. they didn’t hear anything.
