Man killed early Wednesday in Marrero

A 35-year-old man was shot to death early Wednesday in Marrero, steps from his front door, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies responding about 1:07 a.m. to a call of shots fired in the 400 block of Westwood Drive found Watson Terrell face down on the ground across the street from his home, said Glen Boyd, a sheriff’s office spokesman. Terrell was pronounced dead on the scene.

Boyd said that someone fired several shots at Terrell as he tried to run, but investigators did not immediately have a motive or suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s office’s Investigations Bureau at (504) 364-5300 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
