A suspect shot and killed an NOPD officer in East New Orleans around midnight Friday. It was then that a suspect opened fire, striking the slain officer several times. At least one of the officers returned fire and apparently struck the attacker. Authorities say only one officer was injured and transported to UMC where he later died.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu says the officer was shot and killed.

"Our officer has expired", said police Superintendent Michael Harrison.

Harrison didn't describe where that apartment was, but a large number of law enforcement officers gathered near the Cypress Parc Apartments in the 6800 block of Cindy Drive in the wake of the shooting.

"This hurts", said Harrison.

They also announced that four-day test cricket will be trialled with South Africa and Zimbabwe confirmed to play this summer. The ODI series will become a direct qualification pathway to the World Cup.

Harrison said there were possibly four people in the vehicle that the officers stopped.

State Police and ATF were also on the scene early Friday morning. The identity of the officer has not been released at the request of the family.

Negotiation teams were able to get the man to surrender peacefully.

A woman who identified herself only as Cassie, said she and her neighbors had to evacuate their nearby apartment building early Friday.

The department has made grief counselors and chaplains available to officers mourning their coworker's death, Harrison said.
