One of the two men fatally shot when JPSO detectives opened fire during a drug bust at an IHOP restaurant on the West Bank was struck five times, the Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Office said Friday (March 29).

Chris Joseph, 38, of New Orleans was pronounced dead at the scene, in a parking lot at the IHOP near the West Bank Expressway and Terry Parkway in Terrytown. Joseph was driving a silver car that, according to authorities, had hit a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s detective and rammed a JPSO vehicle during the drug sting, prompting officers to begin firing.

Daviri Robertson, 39, of New Orleans, who was in the passenger’s seat, was also fatally wounded in the shooting. He was struck once, the Coroner’s Office said.

An unidentified JPSO detective, who was standing on the passenger’s side of the vehicle, was injured by friendly fire, according to Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joseph Lopinto. The detective was in stable condition following surgery at University Medical Center. The deputy hit by the vehicle declined to be taken to the hospital, Lopinto said.

Jefferson Parish Coroner Gerry Cvitanovich released details regarding the number of times Joseph and Robertson were shot in preliminary results of autopsies performed Friday. The autopsies were conducted a day later than usual as part of Coroner’s Office protocol regarding deaths involving law enforcement.

During the day-long delay, the families of Joseph and Robertson were given the chance to have their own physicians observe the autopsies. Neither family chose that option, Cvitanovich said in an emailed statement. The final autopsy reports will take several weeks to complete.
