Kentucky Man Gunned Down In New Orleans

A Kentucky man, who moved his family halfway across the country to help people in need, ends up a crime victim.

Tony White was murdered in New Orleans, the city's 108th murder this year. Police say it appears it was a random carjacking.

White was on his way home from work at around two in the morning when the crime took place. He was found face down in the street, with a gunshot wound to the face.

Someone took off with his Jeep Liberty.

The white family is from Johnson County. Tony white was a contract manager there and helped build the Big Sandy Penitentiary in Martin County.

He moved to New Orleans to be a construction manager for the city as rebuilding continues after Hurricane Katrina.

His wife says she will not stay in New Orleans, but isn't sure where to go now.

    My condolences go out to this family. What a shame. I do feel for the people of New Orleans, but I cannot imagine taking my family there to live. Enough has not been done to make the city safe yet. There will be a special reward in Heaven for this man who risked his life to save others. however.
