A man killed in New Orleans East this weekend is the son of two prominent community leaders, according to our partners at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

The coroner confirms 20-year-old Nnamdi Louis was shot and killed in the 8100 block of Paris Road. Someone discovered Louis' body just before 10 a.m. Sunday.
