BREAKING: NOLA Police Officer SHOT DEAD By Criminal During Transport
Travis Bois fled the scene after shooting the police officer dead.

Officer Holloway was a 22 year veteran of the force.

New Orleans police officer Daryle Holloway was shot dead while transporting a suspect this morning. The suspect, 33 year-old Travis Bois, is still at large after killing the officer.

KLFY reported:

A 22-year veteran of the NOPD was shot and killed after a suspect he was transporting was able to get out of his handcuffs and get a hold of a gun.

 

The incident occurred around 9 a.m. near the intersection of Elysian Fields and North Claiborne. After the shooting, the car crashed. Officer Daryle Holloway, 46, was rushed to the hospital where he died.

 

A manhunt is on for the suspect, 33-year-old Travis Bois, who is now wanted for murder.

 

​”That prisoner was able to get his hands out of the handcuffs and was able to get a firearm and shot officer Darryl Holloway while he was driving,” said NOPD Chief Michael Harrison.

 

Harrison said Holloway leaves behind a family and that telling them of his death was “the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.”

 

​Harrison said Bois was able to get out of the handcuffs and make his way from the back seat, through an opening in a steel cage that separates the front and back seats. That is when he shot Holloway.

 

Harrison said Holloway continued to try to gain control of the situation, before the vehicle crashed.
