NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) -- New Orleans police say a Domino's delivery driver was shot and killed Monday night in Algiers.  Police say the man was accompanied by a Domino's trainee who was unhurt in the attack.

It happened in the 5900 block of Stratford Place a little after 7:15 pm.  According to police, the driver had just made a pizza delivery and was outside of his delivery vehicle when another car rolled up and seven shots rang out.

The coroner identifies the victim as 49-year-old Michael County.

Police say the trainee was inside the car waiting for County to return.  As of Monday night, detectives did not think robbery was a motive for the attack.

NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison called on neighbors or anyone who saw something -- or knows something -- about the attack to contact CrimeStoppers at 504-822-1111.
