Video part of review of fatal Louisiana police shooting

TROOPER

Harrison said the man later opened fire on pursuing law officers, who returned fire.

Three subjects exited the vehicle and then an exchange of gun fire ensued between one of the subjects and a State Trooper. Two of the three men riding in the stolen Camry, including one police say fired the first shots at officers, remain at large and should be considered armed and unsafe, said NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison. That gun had been reported stolen from St. Tammany Parish, Harrison said.

The Louisiana State Police trooper was shot in the arm by a passenger in a auto which he had pulled over because he thought it might be stolen. The State Trooper was struck in the arm during this exchange.

"I just saw them putting the state trooper in the ambulance, and then I saw they were pumping the guy's chest right there in the middle of the street right there on the corner of New Orleans and Law", Arnold said.

The other two men fled the scene. Both officers have been placed on administrative reassignment pending the ongoing investigation.

The chief declined to identify the two NOPD officers.

The injured State Trooper was transported to University Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition. "Law enforcement officers returned fire, striking the suspect".

A spokesperson with the New Orleans Police Department confirmed the shooting.

We will provide more information as soon as it becomes available. That footage, as well as footage from dashboard cameras, is being reviewed, Harrison said.

Harrison said the coroner's office would conduct an autopsy Tuesday and would release the dead man's identity.

The NOPD is helping with this shooting. The two suspects are still at-large.

At a news conference Monday afternoon, Harrison said officials would determine whether and when the video could be released to the public.
