The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating a double homicide that happened just before midnight Tuesday in Harvey.
Deputies said at 11:58 p.m. they responded to reports of gunshots in the Woodmere subdivision in Harvey. They found the bodies of two unidentified males with multiple gunshot wounds inside a Chevrolet S-10 Blazer at 4012 Paige Janette Drive. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene.
A Waggaman man who was wounded during a shooting that left two college students dead in Harvey’s Woodmere subdivision remains hospitalized, partially paralyzed by a bullet that lodged near his spine, his attorney said Tuesday. Jeremy Coleman, who turned 20 just days after the shooting, is one of two defendants booked with murder in the deaths of Nikiayn Westerfield of Westwego and David Harrison of Gretna.
Westerfield and Harrison, both 19, were found dead in a sport utility vehicle in the 4000 block of Paige Jenette Drive. Authorities have not said how Coleman was wounded.
He was booked with murder after he showed up at West Jefferson Medical Center in Marrero with a gunshot wound. Also charged in the case is Irvin Harris, 20, of Harvey.
