A New Orleans police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty in East New Orleans overnight, Superintendent of Police Michael Harrison said at a press conference early Friday morning.
The officer, assigned to New Orleans' 7th District, was on routine patrol along with three other officers shortly after midnight.
When they exited their vehicle after observing what was described as suspicious behavior, the officers were immediately fired upon by a male suspect, Harrison said.
I hope this is just a gang related shooting. I hope the extreme group will come and denounce that this happened for a man try to protect thier lives and freedoms.
