Investigators have identified the man found dead inside a crashed car on the eastbound side of I-76 in Mount Laurel late Monday night.
Louis E. Ciccanti, 48, was driving a black 2004 Mercedes-Benz 500 eastbound near I-76's milepost 4 when he was fatally shot around 10:30 p.m., New Jersey said police told FOX29.
The vehicle then plowed into a traffic barrier before coming to a stop.
Authorities are seeking the public's assistance with any information that they might be able to provide about the case.
Police confirmed that Ciccanti had been shot at least once while he was driving, later succumbing to his injuries which led to the crash. They couldn't confirm whether or not he was in the vehicle alone.
Investigators were still on the scene into Tuesday morning and had initially labeled the death suspicious.
