Jefferson Parish Sheriff's investigators are working to establish a possible motive for a murder in Marrero early Friday morning.

38-year-old Marlon Bennett was shot to death in a bedroom of a residence in the 2500 block of Oregon Street.

The Sheriff's Office says two men barged into the house shortly after 2 a.m., found the victim in a bedroom and shot him once in the head.

3 other persons were in the home at the time, but none was hurt.

Witnesses told detectives that the perpetrators fled in an unknown vehicle.
