How did LaSalle die on NCIS: New Orleans?
Upon finding the cabin where his brother died, a gunman came through the door and shot LaSalle multiple times. Pride (played by Scott Bakula) arrived on the scene and had him airlifted to a hospital.
LaSalle would not survive his time in the hospital. It brought an end to the story of the character and the time that Lucas Black is going to be acting on the show.
The impact is going to go on, though, especially since LaSalle was such a well-liked character by everyone on the show and the viewers at home. He will certainly be referenced for many episodes to come.
These NCIS: New Orleans spoilers bring a sad end to the story for Special Agent Christopher Lasalle. He was with the show as far back as when it was just a crossover with the other NCIS programs.
LaSalle was a Season 1 character, and he is going to be sorely missed.
NCIS: New Orleans airs Tuesday nights at 10/9c on CBS.
