NEW ORLEANS — It’s a scene no law enforcement officer ever wants to investigate.

The New Orleans Police Department says a Housing Authority of New Orleans officer was found shot to death inside his police cruiser early Sunday morning in Central City.

The driver’s side window was broken out and the cruiser lights were still on when responding officers found the body. NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said the officer’s car was found in drive.

“What we know right now is that he was fatally wounded, and it is just a sad day,” Harrison said. “We are all very touched by it and our thoughts and prayers are with the chief, his family and the officers of the housing authority.”

“It is a tough day. It is a hard thing to watch one of your colleagues lose their life in the line of duty.”
