    LA - Officer Michael Louviere, 26, & Simone Veal, 32, slain, Marrero, 20 Jan 2017

    Louisiana authorities say a woman who was fatally shot along with an off-duty police officer in a town outside New Orleans had been chased down in a vehicle by the shooter, who killed her as she lay on the ground after crashing her car.

    The officer killed at the scene is identified as Michael Louvier, according to Jefferson Parish Newell Normand.

    The woman was identified as 32-year-old Simone Veal of the 4000 block of Lillie Street in Marrero.


    Louvier was on his way home when he saw the crash. He got out of his vehicle and attempted to assist people involved in the accident and direct traffic.


    While attempting to assist them, Louvier was shot in the head. It's unclear when the woman was shot.


    Normand said authorities are searching door-to-door for 31-year-old Sylvester Holt.

    A man suspected of killing two people, including an off-duty police officer, was apparently the same man threatening to jump off a New Orleans bridge Friday afternoon, Fox 8 reported.

    [...]

    Authorities say Holt was released from jail on Jan. 7 after prosecutors declined to prosecute him for rape.


    A Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman said prosecutors dropped the rape case due to “lack of witness participation.”

    Officers had guns trained on the man who was believed to be a person of interest in the shooting of a Westwego officer and another woman as of 3:45 p.m.


    The man had been standing on the support beams of the bridge for several hours. At least three officers could be seen with guns drawn.

    [...]

    Police officers had converged around a man on the edge of the westbound side of the Crescent City Connection on Friday afternoon, in a standoff that one official said was related to the search for Sylvester Holt, who has been named as a person of interest in the fatal shooting hours earlier of a Westwego police officer and a 32-year-old woman.

    Jefferson Parish marriage records confirm that Veal and Holt were married.

    Oh wow. Sounds like a jilted boyfriend who can't stand rejection and didn't want anyone to try to save or help her, which is why he killed the off duty officer. Either that or she was advising someone to break up with him and that person took her advice. Hopefully they find this man quickly because he sounds like a real threat to the public if he would kill an off duty officer who was trying to offer assistance.

    A man threatening to jump from New Orleans' Mississippi River bridge ignored a rope lowered to him as police hunted for a man who fatally shot an off-duty police officer and a woman who had crashed her car.


    Police pulled the rope back up late Friday afternoon, and the man lay down on a girder below the bridge and outside its railing.
    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/l...aming-44918741


    The Sheriff’s Office had received a 911 call reporting a domestic dispute near the intersection at about 6:30 a.m., and as Louviere pulled over and started to cross Barataria, shots rang out, Normand said. Both Louviere and Veal were killed.


    Normand said Veal had called the Sheriff’s Office just minutes before to report being shot at in the nearby Hillcrest subdivision, on the 3000 block of Lillie Street.

    The suspect just shot himself, per live local news Fox8. No word yet on his condition. He still was on the girder of the bridge.

    Reporters heard a gunshot, then saw the man stagger forward and drop to the ground. LE confirmed the shooting.

    26 y/o Westwego, LA LEO shot & killed on duty Jan 20 2017

    "Westwego police officer Michael Louviere, who was shot in the head and killed while responding to an incident in Marrero on Friday morning (Jan. 20)...joined force in July 2015...graduated first in his class from the Kenner Police Academy, where he won multiple awards... "

    How is it they manage to live thru active duty in war zones but are shot & killed in line of duty in broad daylight here in US?

    RIP Officer Louviere. Thoughts and prayers to family, friends & community.

    No updates on Holt's condition this A.M.

    So, Holt was angry at Veal because she was pregnant by another man, yet he was accused of raping a woman he had just met in a bar in Oct.

    Holt is accused of sexually assaulting a 33-year-old New Orleans woman, said Col. John Fortunato, spokesman for the department. Holt and the victim did not know one another.

    Yeah - the mind of an abusive man doesn't work that way. In their mind, they can do whatever they want but their significant other can only do what they're allowed to do. And leaving an abuser is the ultimate insult.
