NEW ORLEANS – A Danish tourist was shot and killed in New Orleans East last weekend, and the NOPD has yet to announce any suspects or leads in the case.
Forty-four-year-old Poul Hansen was pronounced dead on the scene on May 18 after officers found Hansen lying face down in the road in the 4200 block of America Street.
The officers were responding to reports that a woman had been shot at that location when they found Hansen.
He had been shot in the head and in the back, according to initial reports by the NOPD.
