AVONDALE, La. (AP) - Jefferson Parish sheriff’s deputies say a 32-year-old Bridge City man was fatally shot early New Year’s Day.

Sheriff Newell Normand said in a news release Joseph Washington was shot multiple times while he stood talking to a friend outside her car in Avondale.

Normand says two men walked up to Washington and shot him. The friend was not injured.

The sheriff says the men have not been identified and investigators have no motive for the shooting.
