VIDEO: Louisiana Wildlife Agent Shot on Traffic Stop, in Critical Condition

A Wildlife and Fisheries agent remains in critical condition at a local hospital after being shot in the back during a traffic stop, which led to a manhunt by several different law enforcement agencies. However, the suspect was apprehended Thursday night around 11:15, reports KNOE.

A source close to the investigation says the Wildlife and Fisheries agent, 32-year old Scott Bullitt, is still in critical condition with a possible spinal cord injury, after a traffic stop near the Russell Sage Wildlife management area.

Thursday night around 6:30, two Wildlife and Fisheries agents pulled over a car on the suspicion the driver was impaired. Sergeant Bullitt attempted to do a pat down search of the driver, 29-year-old Luke Hust, but he resisted, pulling a gun and shooting Bullitt in the back. He also fired several rounds at another agent, who opened fire in response.

Hust is in custody charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder.

It doesn't make any difference what agency you work for, if you have on a badge you are marked for death by the lawless scum that are roaming the streets of America. They will even shoot you in the back. Imagine that!
