LSU Superfan "Big Lee" shot to death at this home in Metairie, LA.

Tow truck company owner "Big Lee" Martin was shot and killed outside his Bonnabel Boulevard home in Metairie.

I knew Big Lee and while he was a total idiot in a ton of ways, he will be missed because of his unique passion for LSU.

His neighbor (a senior citizen) couldn't stand him anymore and blew him away on Saturday at his home.

He will be buried in an LSU coffin that can been seen in the below video.

$500,000 bond for suspect in 'Big Lee' Martin killing

Wayne Higgins, 78, of Metairie, was arrested and booked with second-degree murder in the death of Lee "Big Lee" Martin.



The man shot dead Saturday morning (May 5) on Bonnabel Boulevard in Metairie has been identified as Lee "Big Lee" Martin, the LSU superfan known for elaborate displays of purple and gold decor in front of his Bonnabel Boulevard home, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Office Joseph Lopinto said. Police have arrested Martin's neighbor, who is suspected of shooting him after a dispute.

Speaking with reporters Saturday, Lopinto said officers were called to Martin's home at 615 Bonnabel Boulevard around 10:51 a.m. Saturday to respond to reports of a shooting. Upon arrival, they found Martin's body on the ground on the side of the home.

Lopinto said the shooting was the result of a dispute between Martin and his neighbor, Wayne Higgins, 78, who lived at 619 Bonnabel Boulevard. The two had an "ongoing feud for over 10 years" that escalated Saturday morning, he said. Lopinto said the neighbor is currently in custody.

"They fight nonstop over anything and everything," Lopinto said.

Lopinto said authorities have obtained video from a neighboring house that shows what occurred leading up to the shooting. In the video, which has not been released publicly, Lopinto said Martin appears to be watering palm trees in his yard as his neighbor, now identified as Higgins, pulls out of his driveway in a black truck. He said the video showed Martin turning and spraying the vehicle with water from the hose.

JP... his neighbor couldn't have agreed with you more. Wonder if he will serve time or get off on self defense.

Many people believed he was a butt hole. The only good thing about him that is note worthy was the fact that he was known as an LSU Superfan. And to the level he took it, he was extremely freaking weird.

We're just not evolving fast enough to live in confined neighborhoods...

A$$hole, creepy perv or naught, human life is too precious and this a-hole just gave the gun grabbers more ill-begotten fodder...

Big Lee learned that you should never bring a hose to a gun fight.
