    New Roads, La. Officer shot

    New Roads officer shot in neck

    A New Roads police officer was shot in the neck during a traffic stop Friday night, Pointe Coupee Sheriff Paul Raymond Smith said.

    At 11:30 p.m. Louisiana State Police began investigating the shooting involving a New Roads City Police officer. The shooting occurred after a traffic stop in the 200 block of Morningside Street in New Roads.

    At 9:24 PM, New Roads police officer (Ofc.), John Chambliss, stopped a vehicle with three occupants, on Morningside Street.
    As Chambliss conducted the traffic stop; he became suspicious after smelling what is believed to be marijuana coming from the interior of the vehicle.

    Chambliss called for another officer to assist with a search of the vehicle. Once the assisting officer arrived and consent to search was granted, the three occupants were removed from the vehicle. It was at this point one of the occupants fled on foot.
    Chambliss pursued the subject on foot and the assisting officer secured the two occupants that remained behind.

    Shortly after the foot pursuit began the suspect produced a weapon and fired two times in Ofc. Chambliss's direction. One bullet struck Chambliss in the shoulder and the second bullet was stopped by the officer’s vest.

    The suspect continued running as law enforcement officers from New Roads Police Department, Livonia City Police, Pointe Coupee Sheriff’s Office, Delta Task Force, Louisiana State Police and Angola Chase team attempted to locate him.

    Several hours later the suspect was taken into custody after his father brought him to the New Roads Police Department.
    Chambliss sustained serious injuries and received initial medical attention from District III & V Fire Departments. He was transported to Pointe Coupee General by Acadian Ambulance and was later transported to Our Lady of The Lake Hospital via Acadian AirMed.

    The suspect, Brett J. Porche, 21, from New Roads, was turned over to Louisiana State Police detectives and booked into the Pointe Coupee Detention Center for Attempted 1st Degree Murder of a Police Officer, Aggravated Battery, Resisting an Officer, Illegal Carrying of a Weapon, and Possession With Intent to Distribute (marijuana).

    Information for this update from a press release from Louisiana State Police.

    Kudos to the shooters father. I know we all want justice, but in this world someone doing the right thing is becoming rare.

    I couldn't find anything on any of the news sites. I did find a thread on another site where a guy posted and said the officer was his cousin. Late last night the guy stated that Officer Chambliss was still in ICU and requested prayer for him. He updated his condition about 15 minutes before I posted this and said that today he was able to talk and he believed he was able to move his arms.
