    Officer Cooper continues to respond to doctors, gives thumbs up, police chief says

    he bullet hit officer Matt Cooper, 34, right between the eyes, and the blood traveled to his carotid artery, and then clotted. A police spokesperson said the trajectory of the bullet likely saved Cooper's life.

    A local vascular surgeon with specific interest in the carotid artery told Channel 2 Action News it's encouraging Cooper is stabilized.

    "We don’t generally go after bullets just to prevent any other problem," said Dr. Patrick Battey, CEO of Piedmont Atlanta.

    Battey said that's why he believes Cooper's doctors weren't in a rush to remove the bullet lodged into his artery.

    Covington Police Chief Stacey Cotton told Diamant, Cooper has been responding to doctors and gave them a thumbs up.

    On Tuesday, we learned he mouthed "I love you" to his wife.

    An update on Officer Kevin Valencia:

    Wife of wounded Orlando Officer Kevin Valencia: 'I don’t know when he’s going to be home'

    Kevin Valencia suffered a gunshot wound to the head June 10 while responding to a domestic violence incident at Westbrook Apartments in west Orlando.

    He remains in a coma at Shepherd’s Center in Atlanta.

    Meghan Valencia said her husband has undergone weekly surgeries recently. A piece of his skull that doctors removed at his initial hospital visit has been reattached, she said.

    “They are very hopeful that this will help him emerge from that coma,” she said. “Once he emerges, it’s a whole different ball game.”

    Estrada is accused of killing Hayward Police Sgt. Scott Lunger, 48, during a routine traffic stop July 22, 2015, in Hayward.

    Dashcam video shows moment illegal immigrant suspect opens fire on Arkansas police officer

    Newly released dashcam video shows the moments a police officer in Arkansas stared down the barrel of a gun during an intense shootout with an illegal immigrant suspect over the weekend.

    The Washington County Sheriff's Office said in a news release the incident happened Sunday, after County Corporal Brett Thompson tried to initiate a traffic stop around 12:43 p.m. in Tontitown, located just outside Fayetteville.

    The driver, 29-year-old Luis Cobos-Cenobio, didn't stop and the officer reportedly initiated a brief chase. After eventually pulling over, Cobos-Cenobio got out of his vehicle and began shooting




    Arkansas State Police is investigating an officer-involved shooting after a multi-agency pursuit through Washington County, according to the sheriff's Office.
    The suspect was identified as Luis Cobos-Cenobio, 29. Officials said Cobos-Cenobio had a gunshot wound to his left arm/shoulder.
    The Washington County Sheriff's Office said that was treated at Northwest Medical Center and has been released into law enforcement custody.
    Cobos-Cenobio is being held on a $500,000 bond in the Washington County jail. He's facing four counts of Attempted Capital Murder, as well as Felony Terroristic Act, Fleeing, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia charges. The sheriff's office says there is also a federal hold on Cobos-Cenobio because they believe he is an unauthorized immigrant.

    ‘Slow, steady progress’ reported for injured Covington officer
    Sept 27, 2018
    • Injured police officer Matt Cooper is making “slow but steady progress” in his rehabilitation at Shepherd Center, officials said.

    Cooper, 34, of Covington, was moved to the center’s Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program earlier this month from Grady Memorial Hospital. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head in the line of duty Sept. 3.

    “He is participating in physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy daily,” according to a post on the Covington police Facebook page.
    His treatment team does not know how long he will be at Shepherd Center.

    Cooper, married and a father of two, was shot pursuing a shoplifting suspect from a Walmart on Industrial Boulevard. He was hit between his eyes, and the bullet traveled down to his carotid artery, clotting his blood and saving his life,

    “The family continues to be very appreciative for the outpouring of support from family, friends and the community,” according to the Facebook post, “but has requested privacy at this time.”

    BOYFRIEND of Louisiana rookie cop who was shot on her way to work is arrested for her murder along with two accomplices
    • Officer Chateri Payne, 22, was shot four times on January 9 in Shreveport
    • Shreveport Police announced Tuesday they arrested three people in connection to her death: Treveon Anderson, 26; Glenn Fierson, 38; and Lawrence Pierre, 22
    • One of the suspects said they are all cousins
    • Treveon is her boyfriend and the two have a two-year-old daughter
    • According to social media posts they were engaged to be married
    • Cops say he shot her then called police and concocted a false story of her death saying she was shot by a stranger
    • The three suspects will be charged with second degree homicide in her killing
    The boyfriend of a slain Louisiana cop and two alleged accomplices have been arrested for her vicious murder after she was fatally shot leaving home for work.

    Officer Chateri Payne, 22, had just graduated from the police academy two months ago and was outside a Shreveport home in uniform on January 9 when she was fatally shot.

    She was heading to work on the night shift when a hail of bullets was fired her way and she was shot four times, including once in the head.

    Shreveport Police announced Monday evening they arrested three people in connection to her slaying - her boyfriend and the father of her child Treveon Anderson, 26; Glenn Fierson, 38; and Lawrence Pierre, 22.

    Shreveport Police Officer Chateri Payne, 22, was shot four times on January 9 in Shreveport.
    On Monday cops announced they made three arrests in her bloody murder

    They will be charged with second degree homicide in her death.

    In Anderson's booking description it says: 'offender was involved in a shooting where he admitted to the role he played, arrested for second degree murder.'

    They were sentenced to second degree murder instead of first as the shooting death was intentional with malice aforethought but not seemingly not premeditated.

    Police have not released a motive in her death. Suspect Pierre said that he was present at the time of the shooting and told police all he, Anderson and Fierson are cousins.

    Shreveport Police Chief Ben Raymond revealed during a press conference on Wednesday afternoon that Treveon Anderson was the boyfriend of Officer Payne and they shared a two-year-old girl together.

    He called 911 to report her injuries and was questioned by police afterwards.

    He claimed to have been inside the home with the child when gunfire rang out and he exited the home and shot 'at a person wearing all white clothing who he believed to be the suspect'.

    But after investigators and detectives collected evidence from the scene, it pointed to Anderson as the killer.

    'We believe Anderson shot and killed her and concocted the false narrative of her being murdered by an unknown suspect. Two other men have been charged in connection with the murder as well,' Chief Raymond said.

    'We are still mourning the heinous murder of Office Payne but thanks to these men and women we can have some peace in taking three evil cowards off the streets so they cannot harm anyone else,' he added.

    Pierre told police after his arrest that he was present for the shooting and Anderson was the gunman, according to The Shreveport Times.

    It's also not immediately clear why Anderson pulled the trigger on his girlfriend.

    Posts on Payne and Anderson's social media accounts mention that they were engaged to be married.

    The weapon, a .40 caliber handgun, used in the killing was also found by police.

    Payne was shot around 8.20pm on Wednesday and was rushed to the hospital where she later succumbed to her wounds about two hours later.

    Police haven't confirmed whether the Caddo Heights home she was hurt in front of was hers.

    A total of 54 first responder units were said to have rushed to the scene to try and assist.

    Payne graduated from the police academy on November 16. She leaves behind a young daughter according to KSLA.

    Funeral services will be held for the slain officer this weekend. The investigation is ongoing.

    The Shreveport Police Officers Association page paid tribute Payne after her death, calling her 'one of their own'.

    'The Shreveport Police Officers Association would like to thank the Citizens of Shreveport for their prayers and their genuine sympathy shown to us at this critical time,' a statement on Facebook read.

    'We have lost one of our own. She was young, and she was beautiful.

    'She was proving herself to be a capable professional, dedicated to serving the Citizens of Shreveport.'

    Mobile Police Officer shot and killed in West Mobile

    MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A Mobile Police officer was killed while trying to arrest a suspect in West Mobile Sunday afternoon.

    Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste said Officer Sean Tuder was shot at the Peach Place Inn on Leroy Stevens Road around 3 p.m.

    Chief Battiste said Tuder was with a group of officers attempting to arrest Marco Perez. Battiste said he did not know if Perez fired the shot that killed Officer Tuder, but Perez has been taken into custody.

    Marco Perez, 19, had been wanted by Mobile Police and federal authorities on several charges. Earlier this week, police accused Perez of faking his own kidnapping to avoid being taken to jail.

    His mother, Tiffany Perez, was arrested Thursday night after police said she helped her son fake the kidnapping in so he could evade police. She's charged with filing a false report.

    Officer Tuder joined the Mobile Police Department in March of 2016 and was named Officer of the Month in August of 2017.

    Tuder's death comes less than a year after the shooting death of MPD Officer Justin Billa. Officer Billa was killed on February 20, 2018. Exactly 11 months before Tuder was killed in West Mobile.
