West Monroe resident Laurie Eley said she heard gunshots from her home and learned the victim was a man that believes she knew well. "He was a sweetheart of a man. We called him Keith. I don't know his last name." West Monroe Police were initially called to the scene but have turned over the investigation to the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office. Louisiana State Police are assisting in the investigation. "They unloaded the gun on him," Eley said. The victim has not yet been identified by law enforcement, but Eley described him as a white man who had been homeless. She said she transported him in her car at times.
