VIDEO: New Orleans Officer Shot and Killed, Suspect to Face Murder Charge

New Orleans Police Department Officer Marcus McNeil, 29, was shot and killed on patrol early Friday morning. Shooting suspect Darren Bridges will face first-degree murder charges, according to NOPD Supt. Michael Harrison.

If convicted, Bridges faces life in prison or the death penalty, reports WWLTV.

McNeil and three other NOPD officers were on patrol when they made an "observation" that caused them to hop out of their police vehicles, at which point Bridges allegedly opened fire and hit McNeil several times.

Harrison said that one or two of the officers returned fire, wounding Bridges, who then ran into a nearby apartment. Police say Bridges later surrendered and was taken to the hospital.

McNeil leaves behind a wife and two children, ages 5 and 2.

Race of suspect? What do YOU think? When Race is NOT given its always obvious its a purposeful attempt at being politically correct to fit the narrative that there is not a war on cops from one particular race. Pretty obvious.
