Man Who Shot Police Officer, Escaped Custody in New Orleans is Captured


New Orleans police have arrested Travis Boys, 33, a suspect in the shooting death of Officer Daryle Holloway.

Police said they caught Boys Sunday morning (June 21) after a brief chase near the intersection of Reynes Street and St. Claude Avenue. No one was hurt, they said.

Authorities unleashed a citywide manhunt for Boys, who they suspect shot Holloway in order to escape from the back of his police car.

After Boys’ arrest, police cordoned off an area around a house near the corner of Forstall Street and St. Claude.

Holloway had been transporting Boys to central lockup when Boys managed to slip his cuffed hands from behind his back, produce a hidden gun and shoot Holloway, police said. Holloway crashed his police vehicle in a utility pole near Elysian Fields and North Claiborne avenues, and Boys escaped.
