Officer reportedly shot in New Orleans East

NOPD Supt. Michael Harrison and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu

After a call of an officer's life "in danger" in New Orleans East, an NOPD officer has died in the line of duty.

The slain officer's name wasn't immediately released to allow his relatives the opportunity to notify extended family about his killing.

New Orleans Police, Louisiana State Police and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives had investigators at the scene. His accused killer was only described as a 30-year-old man. "This hurts. I can't begin to tell you how much this hurts".

The shooter peacefully surrendered after negotiations, Harrison said. Harrison says the officer's identity is not being revealed at this time.

Harrison said he has met with the officer's family and that "they're in our prayers". Harrison didn't immediately elaborate on what they observed.

Several officers returned fire, wounding the suspect. He said that's when a suspect fired shots, hitting the officer.

There was a large police presence in an apartment complex near where the shooting happened.

A woman who identified herself only as Cassie, said she and her neighbors had to evacuate their nearby apartment building early Friday.

"Our worst nightmares have come to be", Landrieu said.
