NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A juvenile was found shot to death Monday morning (Jan. 3) near Lake Michoud in New Orleans East, police said.

New Orleans police said the male victim was found lying on the ground near a vehicle shortly before 10 a.m. in the 14000 block of Michoud Boulevard. The area near the former Six Flags New Orleans site is mostly wooded on one side, with a small housing development separating it from Lake Michoud.
