AmeriCorps pulls 2 teams from New Orleans after teen volunteer shot to death

AmeriCorps has pulled two of its National Civilian Community Corps teams out of New Orleans after one of its volunteers was shot to death.

Eighteen-year-old Joseph Massenburg was found shot to death in a neighborhood Monday night.

The group's acting press secretary Samantha Warfield says the teams with about 18 people were sent back to their home base in Vicksburg, Miss.

Warfield says the teams had been working with Habitat for Humanity and Green Light New Orleans.

She says the organization has slightly fewer than 900 AmeriCorps members still working in New Orleans

Massenburg was new volunteer and had just begun working with Green Light New Orleans, a local nonprofit that works to install energy-efficient lighting.

Police have released few details on possible suspects or motives in the killing.
