PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A prominent Haitian banker has been killed in the capital of Port-au-Prince.

A spokesman for Haiti's police force said Wednesday that Venel Joseph was fatally shot while at the wheel of his car. Gary Desrosiers said police have not arrested anyone and do not have any more details about Tuesday's killing.

Joseph served as director of Haiti's Central Bank during former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's second term from 2001 to 2004.
