SORRENTO, LA (FOX44) — The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating its latest homicide. People who live on L.V. Road say they heard several gunshots around four Saturday morning. They came outside to find a black man in his twenties or thirties wearing a white long sleeve shirt, jeans and white tennis shoes shot dead on the side of the road. The identity of the victim is still unknown. The murder has shaken up this normally peaceful neighborhood.
“I ain’t never saw nothing like that…this is a little, quiet, little neighborhood. It’s gotta be safe. I got my momma, cousin, my auntie. This is a spot where never nothing, no crimes go on out here,” says Bearl Scott.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Crimestoppers at 344-STOP.
