One of the most unexpected events of NCIS: New Orleans season 6 was the loss of Lucas Black's character, Agent Christopher LaSalle.  

The episode "Matthew 5:9" saw LaSalle and his colleagues investigating the murder of LaSalle’s brother, but before they could solve the case, LaSalle was shot dead.  

LaSalle's demise shocked longtime fans of the show, but Black has since clarified why his character’s exit from the series was so sudden.  

NCIS: New Orleans is a crime drama series and a spin-off of the NCIS franchise. It follows a team of Naval Criminal Investigative Service agents stationed in the Big Easy 

where they regularly deal with crimes involving the Navy and Marine Corps. Actors featured on the NCIS show included Scott Bakula, CCH Pounder, and Rob Kerkovich, amongst others. 

NCIS: New Orleans aired for seven seasons, gaining a huge following due to its likable cast and eye-catching Louisiana setting.  

Lucas Black's Agent Lasalle leaving the show definitely put a damper on things, but the series went on without him. 

Agent Lasalle's Lucas Black seems to be enjoying a respite from acting, shifting his focus to his YouTube channel, where he posts hunting, fishing, and travel videos.
