    New Orleans police officer fatally shot at high school basketball game

    A Tulane police officer was shot and killed outside a high school basketball game Friday evening, the New Orleans Police Department announced.

    At around 6:15 p.m. a person attempted to enter the George Washington Carver High School gymnasium, where the game was being held, and was refused by one of the staff members, New Orleans police told reporters Friday.

    "The officer heard the disturbance and attempted to intervene," NOPD Superintendent Shaun Ferguson said. "As a result of intervening and attempting to escort this individual out of the school, this individual pulled his weapon out and fired a shot that struck the officer in his chest."
    The shooting happened outside the gymnasium, Ferguson said.
    The NOPD wrote on Twitter that they were on their way to the scene after learning that "a law enforcement officer from an outside agency was shot."

    New Orleans police investigate after the fatal shooting of a police officer at George Washington Carver High School where a basketball game was being played, Friday, Feb. 26, 2021, in New Orleans.
    When they arrived at the high school, police found the officer suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest, the NOPD said in a statement.
    The officer, who was also a reserve officer with the City Court Constable, was taken to University Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead, Ferguson told reporters.

    A suspect was immediately apprehended and arrested, according to the police department's statement.
    "We do have an individual detained at this time, who we do believe is responsible for this act," Ferguson said. "Again, this is a very fluid situation. Our homicide division will be the lead in this investigation while our force investigation team will assist in this process."
    Ferguson said the deceased officer's name cannot yet be released, as the incident is still under investigation. The NOPD said in their statement that they will release his name upon completion of an autopsy and notification of family.

    "The Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office mourns the loss of the the deputy constable killed tonight in the line of duty. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and the 2nd City Court Constable at this difficult time,".

    Saw that on the news as soon as it happened. Think they were saying he was there it not dead.
    But later updated in just 10 12 to him.passing.
    I assume it is a minor who shot him thus an arrest but no name.
    Very sad that there is such low regard for life right now.

    considering New Orleans, I can't say I'm surprised. New Orleans, Boston, Seattle, and a couple other cities are especially bad, but society as a whole is being flushed down the toilet.

    All because the guy didn't want to put a mask on.

    Uh huh...

    Just moments before Shallerhorn attempted to enter the school, he robbed a man at gunpoint in the parking lot. Police say a 39-year-old man was sitting inside his vehicle when he was approached by the suspect.
    Shallerhorn raised his shirt and brandished a gun while demanding the victim’s medallion chain. The victim complied.

    Well, you would think that if you were going to rob somebody, that you would WANT to wear a mask. Go figure. Condolences to the officer's family and friends.

    It’s my understanding that the robbery was learned of after the shooting occurred.

    Maybe to the officers. The suspect knew he did an armed robbery. That’s the bad thing, he might have thought the LEO knew about it as well.

    I wonder if Mr. Shallerhorn has made bail yet. It is Orleans.
