NOPD: Man who fired at officers shot, dies
NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans police say a 37-year-old man wounded by officers during an exchange of gunfire after a traffic stop has died.
Police spokesman Hilal Williams said in a statement that officers were pulling a vehicle over around 11 p.m. Wednesday when three people inside fled. Officers chased them on foot.
Williams says a man produced a gun during the pursuit and fired at the officers. One of the officers fired back, striking the man in his lower extremities.
The unidentified man was taken to a hospital, where he died Thursday morning.
Police say the other two individuals, believed to be a man and woman, remain at large.
