As devastated family and friends make plans to bury and memorialize Ryan Saffrhan, Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office investigators are searching for two suspects accused of gunning him down in Metairie Saturday night (Jan. 16).

Detectives obtained first-degree murder warrants for Darren Lloyd, 19, of 3303 Pleasure St., New Orleans, and Ira Brown, 20, of 2740 Kingston St., Kenner, said Col. John Fortunato, spokesman for the department.

Saffrhan, 34, of Marrero, died of a gunshot wound to the chest in the 500 block of North Elm Street. Deputies found him around 8:21 p.m., slumped over the seat of a yellow, 2001 Nissan Xterra near a vacant lot.

Detective Melvin Francis determined that Saffrhan had been in the Elm Street area trying to sell marijuana earlier that evening, Fortunato said. Witnesses told investigators two men robbed Saffrhan, stealing the marijuana and several other items. Saffrhan was still in the neighborhood, trying to find the men who had robbed him, Fortunato said.

Witnesses helped detectives identify Lloyd and Brown as suspects in Saffrhan's death. Investigators are also looking into whether the pair was also responsible for the robbery, Fortunato said.
