Police investigate at the scene in after a New Orleans officer was shot and killed

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.

When one or more officers got out of the vehicle, a gunman opened fire, striking one officer "several times", and causing the officer to collapse at the scene, Harrison said.

There was an exchange of gunfire between the officers and the suspect. The officer was taken to University Medical Center, where he died.

Following the shooting, the 30-year-old suspect ran into a nearby apartment building.
