Jefferson Parish Sheriff Harry Lee died this morning, Chief Deputy Newell Normand announced.

Lee was admitted to the hospital Sunday morning after having difficulty breathing at home. He had just returned earlier in the week from treatment for his leukemia at M.D. Anderson Center in Houston.

"Harry Lee, sheriff of the parish of Jefferson left us," Normand announced outside Ochsner Hospital. He said the sheriff suffered from severe complications from leukemia.
