“Kato is accused of standing over the officer during his final moments and continuing to fire an assault style rifle at close range…”
Damn, this nigga is hardcore.
The Baton Rouge police officer killed Sunday afternoon has been identified as Sgt. Glenn Dale Hutto Jr., who served with the department for 21 years before the attack on law enforcement this weekend left him dead and his colleague hospitalized with critical injuries.
Officials confirmed the deceased officer’s name Monday night, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the department has not officially released his identity.
Hutto was one of two officers shot while police were responding to tips about a homicide suspect, Ronnie Kato, in the city’s Howell Park neighborhood. Kato barricaded himself in a house after the shooting and then was taken into custody without incident following a standoff with police that lasted several hours Sunday afternoon.
Kato was wanted in connection with a separate domestic violence homicide that morning. The shooting occurred around 12:30 p.m. on Conrad Drive.
The officers were both transported to at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center, though court records show Hutto died at the scene. Kato is accused of standing over the officer during his final moments and continuing to fire an assault style rifle at close range, according to his arrest report.
