Eleven Louisianans have died at the hands of police in 2015.
Among Louisiana’s 11 police-related killings reported this year, only one has occurred in the Acadiana area. That shooting involved Nathan Massey of Ville Platte, who was killed by a Louisiana State Police trooper during a hostage situation involving his girlfriend.
According to The Guardian:
Massey took his girlfriend hostage in a trailer but she escaped after police said they heard gunshots. Massey was then shot by a trooper through the trailer window.
Massey’s case remains under investigation.
