Los Angeles Times - - CHARLESTON CHURCH SHOOTING - — as­so­ci­ated press

A hand­cuffed pris­oner in amov­ing po­lice cruiser man­aged to grab a gun, fa­tally shoot the of­fi­cer at the wheel and es­cape from the ve­hi­cle, which ca­reened into a util­ity pole at a busy New Or­leans in­ter­sec­tion, po­lice said.

Of­fi­cer Daryle Hol­loway, 45, died at a hos­pi­tal, po­lice chief Michael Har­ri­son said.

Mean­while, a man­hunt was on for Travis Boys, 33, who had been ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of ag­gra­vated as­sault and­was be­ing taken to jail when he es­caped.

A New Or­leans depart­ment spokesman said po­lice were try­ing to de­ter­mine what weapon was used and how it had been ob­tained, but do not be­lieve it was the of­fi­cer’s gun.
