NEW ORLEANS — An armored truck company worker was shot dead Wednesday afternoon near the corner of Tulane Avenue and South Galvez Street.

According to NOPD Chief Michael Harrison , the man was on the job and servicing the ATM machine at Campus Federal Credit Union.

Witnesses told police that at least two suspects approached the worker, and gunfire was exchanged. The man was shot multiple times. He died shortly after at a nearby hospital.

NOPD did not say the name of the company the victim worked for, but a Loomis truck remained at the scene late this afternoon.

Harrison said it would be speculation at this point to say robbery was the motive.

The FBI and NOPD are both investigating the case.

Harrison said the investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is urged to call NOPD, Crime Stoppers or the FBI New Orleans.
