Prayers, blood drive for officer wounded in New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS- Friends and family are praying for a Louisiana sheriff's deputy critically wounded in New Orleans while serving a warrant as well-wishers donated blood for his recovery.
Debbie Webber, a spokeswoman for the Drug Enforcement Administration, said late Tuesday that Stephen Arnold was still in the intensive care unit after losing a lot of blood.
She said doctors would be monitoring him closely over the next few days to make sure there's "nothing wrong with his brain."
Arnold was shot five times while taking part in a task force serving a warrant in New Orleans.
The man suspected in the shooting, identified by police as Jarvis Hardy, was in FBI custody.
Friends and well-wishers have been lining up at centers in Jefferson Parish, where the officer was from, to give blood.
