New Orleans cop shot to death while on routine patrol

- A police officer in New Orleans was killed on Friday morning. Authorities say only one officer was injured and transported to UMC where he later died. The suspect then ran into a nearby apartment, where he was later apprehended and taken to the hospital.

The officer who was killed was assigned to NOPD's 7th District, which polices New Orleans East, Harrison said.

"Our officer has expired", said police Superintendent Michael Harrison.

The shooting occurred about 12:15 a.m., near Cindy Place and the Interstate 10 Service Road. The identities of the officer and suspect have not been released.

State Police and ATF were also on the scene early Friday morning.




When the victim got out of his vehicle, the perpetrator fired on him and the officer returned fire, according to FOX 8.

After police shot the man who opened fired at them, Harrison said, the wounded gunman fled into an apartment.

A SWAT team responded and the suspect eventually surrendered.

"This hurts", Harrison said.

"These are the worst kind of days for the city", the mayor said.
