Police Identify Officer Shot In Shreveport – Search Continues For Suspect
Police in northwest Louisiana have identified an officer who was killed and the suspect wanted in his slaying.
Shreveport Police Chief Willie Shaw says 24-year-old Thomas Lavalley was shot multiple times Wednesday night while answering a call about a suspicious person at a home in the city's Queensborough neighborhood. Shaw says neighbors told the officer that the man inside the home was wanted. Shaw says the officer didn't know the man was armed, and he went inside and was shot.
