NOPD Investigating Homicide in First District

The NOPD is investigating a homicide that occurred today (February 9, 2024) in the 700 block of South Galvez Street that left an adult male dead.

At about 6:55 a.m., NOPD First District officers responded to a call of an unresponsive subject down at the location. The male subject was located and subsequently declared deceased on scene by EMS. At that time, the incident was deemed an unclassified death.

As investigation into the incident progressed, detectives obtained evidence that led them to believe the subject was the victim of a homicide. The signal for the incident was then changed to a homicide.

Investigators are currently in the process of gathering evidence and information to identify the person(s) responsible for this incident, as well as a motive. No additional details are currently available.

The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office will identify the victim and official cause of death upon completion of autopsy and notification of family.

Anyone with additional information that can assist in this investigation is asked to contact NOPD Homicide Section detectives at 504-658-5300, or to call anonymously to Crimestoppers of Greater New Orleans at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
