Shamika Johnson of Sunset was killed Wednesday afternoon, according to KLFY TV-10.
She was one of two people stabbed at 121 Anne St. A Sunset police officer who responded to the stabbing was shot. His condition is unknown. The names of the other victims have not yet been released.
ETA: Looks like the LEO might be second deceased victim. Not confirmed.
Strange that two victims in the store were stabbed but the officer was shot. I wonder if it was a robbery gone wrong? Maybe those were the employees inside? Very tragic.
Sunset Police Officer Henry Nelson and Shameka Johnson, 40, died in the stabbing and shooting incident in Sunset today, Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said.
Two other people were injured -- Courtney Jolivette, the suspect's girlfriend; and Surlay Johnson. Both are at area hospitals and Surlay Johnson is in critical condition.
The suspect has been identified as Harrison Lee Riley Jr. of Arnaudville.
Shaeka and Surlay Johnson are the sisters of Grand Coteau mayor, Shaterrel Johnson, said Opelousas mayor Reggie Tatum. The two were allegedly stabbed by Wiley.
The stabbings didn't take place in the store. That occurred in a home. When LE showed up, the suspect shot the officer, and drove to a nearby Mini Mart. No one at the MM was injured.
The two stabbing victims were sisters of the mayor of Grand Coteau.
A third stabbing victim was the perp's wife.
And now it's confirmed. The officer is dead. [HR][/HR][...]
The suspects wife, Courtney Jolivette, was also stabbed in the incident. She was taken to Alexandria Medical Center, where she was undergoing surgery.
Police officers said the suspect appeared to be high on drugs, according to Guidroz.
After the stabbing and shooting on Anne Street, the suspect drove three blocks to JR Food Mart and service station and drove his car through the front of the store, Guidroz said.
This makes three officers in three weeks killed in South Louisiana.

The Latest: Police Chief: Officer, Accused Man Are Cousins
SUNSET, La. — Aug 27, 2015, 12:20 AM ET
By MELINDA DESLATTE Associated Press
The latest on a police officer being shot and three people being stabbed in Sunset, La. (all times are local).
A Louisiana police chief says a police officer responding to a domestic call was a cousin of the man accused of shooting him.
Police Chief Luis Padilla (puh-DEE-yuh) says Sunset Officer Henry Nelson, 51, was killed by Harrison Lee Riley Jr. on his last workday before a month's vacation. He'd planned to spend it with his teenage daughter, who lives out of town. Padilla says he doesn't know where she lives.
Padilla says Nelson was outgoing, friendly and always smiling.
Oh no. Cousins? Is that how the shooter got a hold of his gun?
He probably really let his guard down since it was his cousin. :cry:
