  • NOPD Supt. Michael Harrison and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu

An unidentified New Orleans police officer died early Friday morning after a shooting near an apartment complex, Mayor Mitch Landrieu said.

It happened shortly after midnight, police say. He added the suspect was also shot multiple times and is at the hospital.

NBC affiliate WDSU is reporting that a suspect shot at police officers who were on routine patrol.

"This hurts", said Harrison.

"There was only one gunman", said Harrison.

The officer's name hasn't been released.

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

The New Orleans police commissioner says the officer was on patrol at Tower Lane and Lake Forest Blvd with three other officers when they spotted something suspicious.

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

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

"Unfortunately, our worst nightmares have come to be", Landrieu said.
