Sunset, LA - A police officer who was allegedly shot by a suspect, along with a stabbing victim, died Wednesday in southwestern Louisiana, officials said.
St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz told Fox News the incident began as a domestic dispute when an officer responding to the scene was shot outside a home.
After shooting the officer, the suspect then drove from the house and ran his car into a store where he barricaded himself.
Guidroz told WAFB-TV that the suspect, identified as Harrison Lee Wiley Jr. barricaded himself inside an office in store, but was eventually apprehended after a nearly two-hour standoff.
"We had to go in with tools. We had to go in with tear gas, c-gas. We had to go in with hammers and firemen’s axes to try to get to the door and breach the door," Guidroz told WAFB.
