The FBI has joined New Orleans investigators in their hunt for a carjacker who shot a good Samaritan who died in front of his young sons, police said Thursday.

“Agents contacted New Orleans police yesterday to offer their help, and detectives accepted the offer because of all the FBI brings to the table,” a New Orleans police statement said.

Police provided further details of Wednesday’s shooting, saying Harry “Mike” Ainsworth, 44, was shot in the chest after he jumped on a vehicle’s hood to help a woman being carjacked.

“Mr. Ainsworth was a longtime supporter and volunteer to the NOPD’s COPS 8 program, which provides assistance to the officers of the 8th District. The members of the 8th District station sincerely appreciated his efforts to fix up the station by painting and repairing various things in the building. He’ll be missed,” Serpas said.
