Numerous sources tell Unfiltered with Kiran that multiple agencies are responding to reports of a second State Police Trooper shot near the Capital One Bank at Airline Hwy in Ascension Parish.
Unfortunately, numerous sources add the trooper has died and has allegedly been dead for several hours. Sources added the trooper was found dead in his unit.
Unfiltered with Kiran is choosing not to name the trooper at this time.
Sources added they believe the suspect may be the same from the chaotic scene earlier this morning with Matthew Mire, 31, and in connection to the investigation from this morning.
Unfiltered with Kiran is awaiting more information and will update as it becomes available.
Meanwhile, the search continues at this hour for Mire, a white male last seen wearing camo clothes who bailed the stolen blue Chevy Silverado. Anyone who sees him is asked to call police and not approach him, saying he is to be considered “armed and dangerous.”
