A Louisiana emissary who was fatally shot circuitously a coiffeur shop while conducting an review in Baton Rouge Saturday night once delivered a baby on the side of a road.
East Baton Rouge Sgt. Shawn Anderson, 43, was shot just before midnight after he responded to a rape case at the Classic Cuts shop on O’Neal Lane. He and his partner “struggled with the suspect” when gunfire erupted, the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office said.
“Our hearts are broken as we suffer for one of the brothers,” Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said.
A year ago, Anderson delivered 34-year-old Laura Walsh’s son Declan in the center of Tiger Bend Road.
“You put me in an active shooter situation, I’m there. we know accurately what to do,” Anderson told the New Orleans Advocate then. “Done a lot and seen a lot. Nothing really rattles me that much, but that was totally outward of my element. That right there, that got me. Thank God all worked out.”
Anderson began his law coercion career with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office in 1999. In 2010, he perceived the Life Saving Award after he discovered a lady on the Old Mississippi River bridge. He was also famous for arising some-more than 60 high-risk warrants as partial of the SWAT group in 2013.
The slain emissary was taken to Ochsner Medical Center where he died after 2 a.m. The second emissary who witnessed the sharpened was not wounded.
The think – whose temperament wasn’t expelled – was bleeding during the sharpened and taken to a circuitously hospital where he remained Sunday, officials said, according to NOLA .com. His condition wasn’t immediately known.
Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards called the occurrence “a comfortless event” and Acting U.S. Attorney Corey Amundson also voiced his condolences.
“Our hearts and prayers are with the family and friends of the depressed emissary and all the dauntless men and women in law coercion who risk their own reserve every singular day to strengthen the communities they serve,” Amundson said in a statement.
Louisiana State Police officials are conducting an review into the shooting.
Anderson’s death marks the second cop killing to strike the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office in the past year.
A rifle-slinging gunman shot and killed 45-year-old Deputy Bradford Garafola on Jul 17. He and two other officers with Baton Rouge Police Department died during an ambush that followed a sniper attack in Dallas, where 5 officers were killed.
