Suspect killed after 3 police officers wounded by gunfire in standoff near New Orleans

KENNER, La. (AP) — Three Louisiana police officers were shot and wounded Sunday during a confrontation with a man who was later killed by a police sniper, authorities and media said.

Sheriff Joseph Lopinto said a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office sniper shot the suspect at a home in Kenner where he had held police at bay and fired at law enforcement after shot at three police officers who were trying to enter the house. WGNO-TV reported.

The injured officers were taken to a hospital after being shot Sunday morning in Kenner, about 15 miles west of New Orleans, Kenner Police Chief Keith Conley said.

The man was wanted in connection with a shooting earlier Sunday in which two people were injured, Kenner police spokesman Capt. Michael Cunningham said.

The three officers and two other victims were all listed in stable condition, WGNO reported.

The man was also a suspect in a robbery and shooting Tuesday that left a man in critical condition, Cunningham said.
