January 3, 2019

MONROE, La. (AP) — Louisiana State Police say a city police officer was shot at a motel while checking a disturbance complaint, and two suspects were wounded.

A news release says the shooting occurred about 2:20 a.m. at a Super 8 Motel in Monroe.

It says that “shots were fired resulting in one officer and two subjects being shot.” It says the officer and men, identified as 26-year-old Jonathan Guillory and 25-year-old Lewis Craft, were treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Police did not identify the officer or mention the officer’s gender.

A state police arrest report says Guillory also grabbed and pushed an officer and it says officers found powder suspected to be methamphetamine.

Guillory faces a charge of resisting an officer and both men face one count each of possessing a controlled drug.
