Man is Shot and Killed in Algiers

August 23, 2013

(August 23, 2013) – Homicide Detectives are investigating the fatal shooting of a 33-year-old man. The victim was found just before 4pm in a parking lot of an apartment complex in the 3400 block of Garden Oaks Drive.  The name of the victim is being withheld pending notification of family members.

Officers responded to call of a “man down” in front of an apartment. When officers arrived they found the unresponsive man suffering from gunshot wounds to his body. EMS arrived and attempted to resuscitate the victim but was unsuccessful. The victim was pronounced dead on the scene.

Moments after the shooting video surveillance in the area captured the pictured white Nissan fleeing the area at a high rate of speed. Detectives were able to get a possible partial license plate number of N33. The vehicle is believed to be a rental.

Investigators are currently in the process of gathering evidence and information to identify the person(s) responsible in this incident, as well as a motive. 

Homicide Detective Jacob Lundy is in charge of the investigation.
