New Orleans Police Arrest Suspect in Killing of Officer

Sunday, 21 Jun 2015 12:52 PM

New Orleans Police Superintendent Michael Harrison says a man believed to have shot and killed a police officer was arrested after he was seen getting onto a city bus.

He says 33-year-old Travis Boys had broken handcuffs on his wrist when he was arrested Sunday morning and taken to a hospital for treatment of apparent dehydration.

He says Boys will be booked with first-degree murder of a police officer, aggravated escape and illegal possession of a firearm — and the aggravated assault charge on which he originally was arrested.

Boys was captured after a 24-hour manhunt. At one point during the search, Boys crashed a pickup truck into a house but then managed to flee.
