A man was found shot dead in a car on Interstate 10 near Orleans Avenue early Monday (June 17), New Orleans police said.

Police believe the man was shot before he drove onto I-10, said NOPD spokesman Gary Scheets, but it wasn’t immediately clear where the shooting happened. The man was found in his car around 2 a.m. on I-10 between Tulane and Orleans avenues. The eastbound interstate was closed for about four hours and reopened by 6 a.m.

The victim was shot more than once, police said. His name was not released.

No more details were immediately available.
