New Orleans police are investigating a homicide of a man in the Seventh Ward.

Police say there is one victim dead in the 1600 block of North Dorgenois.

Around 9 p.m. Sunday night officers were called to the area for a report of fireworks but found no perpetrators.

They returned to the area Monday morning after receiving a call about a body near an abandoned house.

When they arrived, officers found a man lying on the ground and a number of spent shell casings nearby.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Orleans Parish Coroner will release the victim’s name and a cause of death.
