Man Fatally Shoots New Orleans Officer Through Cruiser Partition

Travis Boys shot New Orleans police officer Daryle Holloway through an access window separating the two men inside a patrol car, leading to a struggle that was recorded by the mortally wounded man's body camera, according to an arrest warrant filed in court, reports nola.com.

"While Officer Holloway struggled with Boys over control of the weapon, Boys yelled three times, 'Let me go before you kill yourself!'" detective Sgt. Kevin Burns Jr. wrote in the warrant application.

After Holloway's car stopped in the 2200 block of North Claiborne, "Boys was able to crawl through the access window from the rear of the transport vehicle, into the front seat, and then exit the front passenger door, all while handcuffed to the front." It's unclear how he was able to get his handcuffed hands from behind him to his front.

Holloway's body camera video, which investigators obtained, corroborated "beyond any doubt" that Boys killed the officer, according to the warrant.

After he was captured Sunday, Boys, 33, was booked with first-degree murder of a policeman, aggravated escape, illegal carrying of weapons, illegal possession of stolen things, and theft of a motor vehicle.

Rest in Peace, Officer Holloway. Condolences to your family and the New Orleans Police Dept. There are those individuals who are loose jointed and can get their hands in front of them after being handcuffed. The only way to help guard against that is to have belly chains readily available which also hook to leg irons and a lock that has a cover and can't be picked.

God rest your soul brother.

roll bars are for off road use only with a helmet. No wonder troopers die in collisions.
