Public welcome to line funeral procession route for DSPD Cpl. Shawn Kelly

DENHAM SPRINGS — Denham Springs Police Corporal Shawn Kelly, an officer killed in the line of duty, will be honored on Thursday, June 8, with full honors.

Cpl. Kelly responded to a disturbance call on May 11 in Denham Springs that left him critically wounded. He took two shots to the chest area but it was the bullet to the neck that left him fighting for his life for nearly three weeks. The man accused of shooting Cpl. Kelly was later shot and killed by a Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Deputy. His wife made the difficult decision to remove him off life support on June 2.

Visitation will be at Healing Place on Highland Rd. in Baton Rouge from 9:30am-11:30am followed by a service at 11:30am.

The funeral procession’s route for Cpl. Shawn Kelly will be as follows:

  • Right out of Healing Place onto Highland Rd.
  • Left onto Airline Hwy.
  • Airline Hwy. to I-12 eastbound to the Denham Springs, Range Ave. exit 10
  • North on Range Ave. to the Denham Springs Memorial Cemetery

The public is welcome to line the procession route. Please use caution and be careful of any passing vehicles.

The service is expected to last about an hour inside Healing Place. Following the service, there will be a ceremony outside with full honors for Cpl. Kelly and his family. After that, the procession will begin taking Cpl. Kelly to his final resting place at the Denham Springs Memorial Cemetery.
