A young Erwinville man is dead after being shot numerous times in front of a grocery store. Deputies were called out to Horner's Supermarket off Section Road a little before midnight. More than 38 bullet shells were found on the ground in the parking lot.

The 23-year-old victim is identified as Thomas James. When deputies arrived to the scene, his car was still running and his body was found outside of the car.

West Baton Rouge Sheriff Mike Cazes says, "It's just sad that here's a 23-year-old young guy that, it's a tragic way to end his life. He died as a result of gun shots."

No arrests have been made as yet. But Sheriff Cazes says they have a good idea who's responsible for James's death.
