Louisiana Police Officer Killed After Responding To Domestic Call

SUNSET, La. (AP) – A Louisiana police chief says a police officer responding to a domestic call was a cousin of the man accused of shooting him.

Police Chief Luis Padilla says Sunset Officer Henry Nelson, 51, was killed by Harrison Lee Riley Jr. on his last workday before a month’s vacation. He’d planned to spend it with his teenage daughter, who lives out of town. Padilla says he doesn’t know where she lives.

Padilla says Nelson was outgoing, friendly and always smiling.

St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says Nelson was shot, apparently with his own weapon, when he answered a call about a stabbing.

Guidroz says Riley then drove from the house and ran his car into a store where he barricaded himself.

Authorities say 35-year-old Riley will be booked with first-degree murder in the deaths of Nelson and 40-year-old Shameka Johnson, and with attempted first-degree murders of his wife, Courtney Jolivette Riley, and Johnson’s 34-year-old sister, Shurlay Johnson.

Guidroz says Riley has an extensive criminal record.
