Jindal responds to shootings of St. John the Baptist deputies

jindal-pic-mardi-gras-crimeGovernor Bobby Jindal issued the following statement on the shooting of St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s deputies this morning:

“Supriya and I were saddened to hear the news this morning about this terrible act of violence. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. The men and women of our law enforcement are heroes who run towards danger, not away from it, so that we can be safe. The Louisiana State Police will be working in conjunction with other law enforcement agencies to fully investigate this incident and make sure the suspects are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

 

 

According to ABC 26, “two St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff's Office deputies, 34-year-old Brandon Nielsen and 27-year-old Jeremy Triche, were killed early this morning and two other deputies were wounded in a pair of related shootings early Thursday morning.

The wounded officers - Jason Triche and Scott Boyington - are hospitalized; they have been admitted into surgery and their exact condition has not been released, but they are expected to survive.

Five suspects are in custody. There are reports that two of the suspects were also shot and wounded, but Sheriff Mike Tregre has declined to confirm that detail.

The first shooting happened just before 5 a.m. when Deputy Boyington was working a traffic detail on LA-3217, also called Bayou Steel Road, near US-61 (Airline Highway) when someone fired on his patrol car.”
