Officer Shot, Two People Stabbed in Sunset, Louisiana.

A gunman was in custody early Wednesday evening after he stabbed two people, shot a police officer and smashed into a convenience store in Sunset, Louisiana, where he barricaded himself in a standoff with police, authorities said.Sheriff Bobby Guidroz told reporters in Sunset the accused attacker had barricaded himself inside a gas station and that Swat officers were in the process of coaxing him out. He says the officer was “responsive” but he has no details on the extent of the officer’s injuries — or those of the other two people who were shot. He says two other women also were stabbed: Johnson’s sister, 34-year-old Shurlay Johnson, and Courtney Jolivette, the wife of the man who is accused in the attacks.

The police department consists of Chief Louie Padilla, six officers, four dispatchers, a secretary and 12 reserve officers, according to the department’s website. The convenience store where a man barricaded himself after allegedly shooting a Sunset police officer, erupted in flames, but firefighters arrived at the scene and quickly extinguished the blaze. Lena Truong tells KATC-TV ( the man ran into the store and pointed a gun at her sister, Nini Truong, and asked where her father was.

State police Superintendent Mike Edmonson says troopers are on the way to the scene in Sunset, about 70 miles west of Baton Rouge, after getting a call around 4:45 p.m.
