HARVEY, La. (AP) — The Latest on the shooting death of a Louisiana sheriff's deputy (all times local):
A law enforcement spokesman says the man accused of killing a sheriff's deputy faces four charges including first degree murder.
A spokesman for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, John Fortunato, said 19-year-old Jerman Neveaux was released from a New Orleans hospital early Thursday morning and taken to jail in Jefferson parish.
He faces four charges: first degree murder, assault, battery on a police officer, and resisting arrest.
Sheriff Newell Normand said Wednesday that Neveaux shot Detective David Michel three times after Michel tried to search him.
That sparked an intense manhunt for Neveaux who was later found in a back yard. He was taken to the hospital Wednesday, suffering from an orbital fracture and cuts and scrapes to his face.
A Louisiana sheriff says the shooting of one of his deputies was a "cold-blooded murder."
Sheriff Newell Normand told reporters late Wednesday how a suspect who was about to be searched by Detective David Michel suddenly flipped around and shot the officer.
As Michel was going down the sheriff said the shooter fired two more shots into the deputy's back.
Authorities later found and arrested 19-year-old Jerman Neveaux. He's being held on charges of first degree murder and assault.
The sheriff says Neveaux was on probation and wasn't supposed to have a gun so he shot the officer.
