MARRERO, La. A 58-year-old man was found dead in front of a Marrero home early Monday morning after visiting a friend.

According to Jefferson Parish Sherriff Newell Normand, the man, Emeal Washington, had just walked to his car in front of 6144 August Avenue when a witness said three unidentified men walked towards him. Two of the men were wearing dark clothing and hoodies, the witness reported.

The suspects began firing at Washington after the witness said he yelled for him to run inside, said Normand, who added that nearly 81 spent shells were found at the scene.

There are no known suspects at the moment and sheriff's investigators haven't determined a motive.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers 822-1111.
