BATON ROUGE- The victim of a murder early Tuesday morning in Baton Rouge has been identified.

Police say 45 year-old Everette Crosley was found lying in the road in the 1600 block of North 38th around 1:10 a.m.

They say Crosley was shot twice.

Neighbors described him as a jack of all trades.

"He helped do landscaping work, helped out everybody he can," Gregory Peck said. "He was pitching in and helping out old ladies. He was a good samaritan in the area."

"It hurts to lose a friend," Phyllis Eisley said. "He was like family to everybody."

He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Crosley was reportedly a transient but had been staying in an abandoned residence near where he was found.

No word yet on any suspects or a motive at this time.

Anyone with any information on this murder, is urged to call the Baton Rouge Police Department.
