NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — As New Orleans police enter the sixth week since a man was fatally shot on I-10, investigators are looking to the public’s help in identifying a vehicle connected to the case.
On January 15, the NOPD responded to I-10 West at Esplanade Avenue around 3:00 a.m. for a report of shots fired.
When they arrived, officers found a 52-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman inside of a car. Both had been shot multiple times.
The male victim, later identified as Mario Harris by the New Orleans Coroner’s Office, was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman was transported to an area hospital.
