The Murder of Shantell Pollard

source: Front Page Detectives

Shantell Pollard was only 19 years-old when she died after being shot on October 31st, 2017. The teenage girl planned to celebrate Halloween that evening with friends on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Louisiana. Unfortunately, Shantell never made it to the celebration. 

Shantell's friends picked her up from her family's home in Thibodaux around 10:00 PM on the evening of the shooting. Their plan was to make the hour-long drive to New Orleans, but first they needed to drop Shantell's friend's children off at a home in a nearby Marydale neighborhood. It was in that neighborhood where Shantell was fatally shot in the head. 

According to reports, police were called to Park Avenue around 10:35 PM. Once officers arrived on the scene, they found Shantell unresponsive in the front seat of an SUV. It was clear that she had been shot, and she was subsequently transported to a local hospital. Shantell succumbed to her gunshot injuries days later, on November 3rd, 2017. 

No arrests have ever been made in Shantell's case, nor have any suspects been publicly announced. A motive for her murder remains unknown. Shantell's family members are inevitably devastated by her death, and they hope to one day receive justice. 

If you have any information that could lead to the arrest of Shantell's killer(s), please contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or submit a tip online.
