MANY, LA (KSLA) - Detectives from Louisiana State Police Troop E are investigating an officer involved-shooting that took place in Sabine Parish early Sunday morning, September 5th. It happened around 3:30 a.m. near the Middle Creek Apartments on Middle Creek Rd.
State Police Sgt. Curtis Parker told KSLA News 12 that a Many Police officer was attempting to serve a warrant when the driver of a vehicle tried to run over him. The driver of that vehicle then fled on foot, and began to fire at the police officer.
