HARVEY, La. - The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a woman in Harvey after she called police about a break in at her home Saturday morning.

Sheriff Newell Normand says around 4 a.m. the unidentified woman called police because she thought someone was breaking into her home in the 3700 block of Clover Lane.

When deputies responded to the location, they found a female lying unconscious at the front door. She was shot multiple times. The victim was pronounced dead on the scene.

Normand said investigators suspect the victim may have been running from someone and tried to get help when she was shot.

The investigation is ongoing, and police haven't named a suspect or motive.

Anyone with information is asked to call CRIMESTOPPERS at 822-1111.
