METAIRIE – The Jefferson Parish Sheriffs office is investigating a shooting involving a deputy, and Crimestoppers is offering a $10,000 reward for information on the suspect, who remains at large.
Sheriff Joe Lopinto says 34-year-old deputy Christopher “Charlie” Haislup was shot twice around 10:30 p.m. on December 9 in the 6400 block of Veterans Boulevard in Metairie.
Haislup was responding to reports of a domestic disturbance at the Wyndham Garden Hotel involving 38-year-old Tyronne Louis.
Louis was allegedly trying to flee the scene when he opened fire.
Lopinto says when the deputy chased Louis, the suspect pulled a gun and fired several times.
Haislup is listed in stable condition at University Medical Center and is expected to undergo at least one surgery on his leg in the coming days, according to Lopinto.
Haislup is an 11-year veteran of the force and has two children, a 2-year-old son and an 8-week-old daughter.
Officials are now searching for Louis.
