Officer Louviere is the fourth law enforcement officer to be fatally shot in the line of duty in the United States this year.
“The officer was shot Friday after he stopped to check on what he thought was a car accident. Officer Michael Louviere, 26, observed the apparent traffic accident and pulled over to assist, Westwego police Chief Dwayne Munch Sr. told CNN. Louviere instead discovered a woman on the ground, shot multiple times. While Louviere was leaning over her, the suspect came up behind him and shot the officer in the head, Munch said.”
