Police Officer Shot and Killed in New Orleans

A New Orleans police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty in East New Orleans overnight, Superintendent of Police Michael Harrison said at a press conference early Friday morning. The accused shooter was also shot when one or more officers returned fire. Authorities say only one officer was injured and transported to UMC where he later died.

Investigators say that the man then ran into an apartment complex.

Harrison didn't describe where that apartment was, but a large number of law enforcement officers gathered near the Cypress Parc Apartments in the 6800 block of Cindy Drive in the wake of the shooting. "I can't begin to tell you how much this hurts".

Harrison said two officers might have fired on the gunman.
