Police: Boyfriend fatally shot Shreveport officer leaving for work
SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Three people have been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a Louisiana police officer preparing to go to work last week.
Shreveport Police Chief Ben Raymond said Tuesday that 38-year-old Glenn Frierson, 26-year-old Trevon Anderson and 22-year-old Lawrence Pierre will be charged with second-degree homicide in the death of Officer Chateri Payne who was heading to work the night shift when she was shot.
Raymond has said Payne, who graduated from the academy Nov. 16., died within hours of being shot multiple times outside a home while in uniform last Wednesday night.
Wednesday morning authorities held a press conference to discuss the shooting.
During the conference, police said they believe Anderson was the shooter. Anderson was Payne's boyfriend and the couple had a child together. Police said the child was at the home at the time of the shooting.
Police didn't say what role the other suspects played in the incident.
Funeral services will be held over the weekend for the slain officer.
