RAYVILLE, La. (AP) — Authorities say a part-time north Louisiana police officer is being treated after being shot during a traffic stop. A suspect is in custody.
Marshall Waters works part-time for the Mangham Police Department and is a full-time emergency technician with Northeast Louisiana Ambulance.
He was airlifted to a hospital after being shot once in the lower abdomen Saturday afternoon. His condition was not immediately available.
A 27-year-old Ville Platte man was later taken into custody after investigators say he shot Waters and fled the scene.
