NEW ORLEANS, LA (WAFB) -

According to the New Orleans Police, an armored truck guard who was unloading money at a bank in New Orleans was fatally shot when three men approached him just before 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Reports say the robbers took the money and drove off. The victim has been identified as 45-year-old Hector Trochez of Kenner.

Police say Trochez was found beside a Loomis vehicle outside of the Chase Bank at South Carrollton and South Claiborne avenues.

NOPD says the suspects abandoned the first vehicle they were in at Adam and Green Streets and  fled in a gray Hyundai with a partial plate of 141654.

The three suspects were described as 3 black males 5'7" to 5'9" wearing dark jackets and hoodies. One of the suspects possibly had a dread lock hair style. 

Witnesses at the scene say the other two guards in the truck were not injured, but were obviously very upset on the situation.

There is no other information available at this time, but check back to get the latest information.
