A Louisiana sheriff’s deputy was shot and killed late Saturday night while conducting an investigation near a Baton Rouge movie theater, officials said.

A suspect was also injured during the incident. No names were given and no details on the original investigation immediately emerged.

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office deputy was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He was on assignment with another deputy when the episode occurred.

“It’s a tragic night for the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office,” said Casey Hicks, the public information director for the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Department. “…We’re focused on working with the family, praying with the family, and making sure that our deputies have the help and support they need.”

Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome and Police Chief Carl Dabadie asked for prayers for the slain deputy’s family.

“I think we are a very praying community and I think that thoughts and prayers are needed here and we come together just like we always do and always have,” Dabadie added. “There’s no doubt we won’t here, also.”

“Our hearts and prayers are with the family and friends of the fallen deputy and all the brave men and women in law enforcement who risk their own safety every single day to protect the communities they serve,” said Corey Amundson, acting U.S. attorney. “We will devote whatever federal law enforcement resources are necessary to ensure that justice is served.”

Our hearts and prayers go out to the family, friends and fellow officers.
