|Authorities say a small town south Louisiana police officer called in to relax a national dispute was killed with his own gun, fired by means of a cousin.
Sunset Police Chief Luis Padilla says 51-year old Henry Nelson was killed a day before he was scheduled to get a month’s holiday, which he planned to spend together with his teenaged daughter.
Also killed was 40-year old Shameka Johnson. St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says she and her 34-year old sister, Shurlay Johnson, had attempted to shield Courtney Jolivette Riley from her husband.
The sheriff says Shurlay Johnson was in critical state and Courtney Riley in secure state.
