Jennings Man Murdered


Jennings Police are investigating the latest murder in their city after a man was found shot to death in his car.

After being shot, the man crashed his car into a tree stump on the 1100 block of West Street in the city's south end. Police say the man was shot in the head as while was driving.

People in the neighborhood say he was probably trying to get to his home not even a block away

Police identified the man as 31 year old Jennings Resident Kenneth Pelican. No arrests have been made, but police say they are getting several tips called in.

This is the city's second murder of the year, and comes on the heels of a 14 year old who was shot Tuesday in Jennings.

The teenager was shot once in the head and remains on life support at a Lafayette hospital.

The recent crime has left police exploring all options, including bringing in the Sheriff's Department and State Police to help control the chaos.

All this happening as authorities still try to find a serial killer, responsible for the murders of eight woman from Jennings.
