Man killed in Officer involved shooting at Metairie apartment complex

METAIRIE, LA.- A man is dead after being shot by a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Deputy at a Metairie Apartment Complex.

Sheriff Joseph Lopinto says that the shooting happened while several of his Deputies were trying to serve a warrant on a man suspected of two recent shootings.

The shooting happened around 7 p.m. at the Grand Vida Apartments in the 2200 block of Cleary Avenue in Metairie.

According to the Sheriff, the suspect, who is also believed to be the man who shot a Grambling football player and his brother who died from his injuries in a triple shooting last month, went for a gun when the deputies tried to arrest him.

It was at that time that Lopinto say that a Deputy shot him.

He died at the scene.
