Shots Fired At Officer

Date: October 24th, 2014

Crowley Chief of Police K.P. Gibson reports that a late night traffic stop, led to shots being fired at a police officer. The incident occurred on North Ave A near West 8th Street in Crowley.

Shortly before midnight, a Crowley Police unit conducted a traffic stop due to switched plates on a vehicle. As the officer initiated the traffic stop with emergency lights and siren, the driver of the vehicle exited his vehicle and fired a weapon at the officer. The officer returned fire as the suspect was fleeing from the vehicle. No one was struck as a result of the gun fire.

As the driver fled the scene, a passenger attempted to exit the vehicle and flee, but was apprehended by the officer. The ensuing investigation revealed that the vehicle was being driven with a switched license plate and is believed to be a “drug rental” vehicle. Officers were able to collect information which led to the arrest of both the driver and the passenger of the vehicle.

Arrested were Jarvis Hopkins, 20, Crowley and Tyler Smith, 18, Crowley. Hopkins was charged with Attempted First Degree Murder of a Police Officer, Resisting an Officer and traffic violations. Smith was charged with Principle to Attempted First Degree Murder of a Police Officer and Resisting an Officer. Both men were booked into the Acadia Parish Jail.

“Our officers have been working hard to remove firearms, narcotics and criminals from our streets. We are working additional personnel in light of the recent violence within our community to stop the handful of people who are turning to these violent acts. These individuals will be held accountable and we will continue our efforts to stop these senseless acts. We cannot do this alone. We need our citizens to get involved and report crime and suspicious activity. This is our community and it will take every citizen’s help” stated Chief KP Gibson.
