The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office on Sunday identified two men killed in a Saturday night shooting on Amelia Street.
Johnathan Sam, 23, was found dead Saturday (Dec. 14) on the porch of a house in the 2700 block of Amelia Street, according to coroner’s spokesman John Gagliano. New Orleans police reported Sam suffered a gunshot wound to the head.
Stephan Raymond, 22, was taken to Interim LSU Public Hospital, where he died following the 7:45 p.m. shooting. Gagliano declined to say where Raymond was shot.
Gagliano said Raymond and Sam were New Orleans residents, but he gave no other identifying details.
Officer Garry Flot, a spokesman for the New Orleans Police Department, said Sunday that he could not release any other details about the shooting, which the department classified as a double homicide.
