Shreveport police officer fatally shot while leaving for work

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A uniformed Louisiana police officer has been fatally shot as she was preparing to go to work on the night shift.

A police spokesman in Shreveport says it happened shortly before 8:30 p.m. Wednesday outside a home.

Hines spoke as the officer was taken to a hospital and did not identify her. The Shreveport Times cited two city sources as saying the officer, Chateri Payne, later died.
