  • Louisiana state trooper shot.

    The search is getting more heated and more intense by the hour for the suspect in the shooting of a Louisiana state trooper. There are indications that it may be near an end. The shooting happened on I-10 near Henderson early Thursday morning, but the manhunt is now focused on Baton Rouge. The suspect is from here.

    We're told 32-year-old Sydney Wright turned himself in for questioning at the Baton Rouge First District Station on Plank Road at around 6:00pm. 37-year-old Tyrone Mack is the suspected gunman. State police believe Wright helped Mack elude capture after the shooting.

    During the day, Baton Rouge police and the state police S.W.A.T. team made several stops. One ended with a wreck on 39th and O'Dell. Another one happened on Florida at Ardenwood. That made for a very scary situation for one young man. But neither led police to Mack.

    State police say just after 3:30 Thursday morning, a trooper pulled Mack over, most likely for speeding. The two started to fight there on I-10 on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge. Somehow during that fight, the trooper got shot in the leg, and the trooper says Mack then took off. Troopers later found his car between Breaux Bridge and Henderson. But state police now believe he's back in his hometown of Baton Rouge.

    Tyrone Mack was released from prison less than two years ago after serving time for manslaughter and drug possession, records show. He was originally sentenced to 18 years in prison, but served 12 years and 4 months. Mack killed a man in Baton Rouge in December 1992. He served his time at several Louisiana prisons, including Angola, records show. A spokeswoman for the Louisiana Department of Corrections says Mack was released early as part of "good time parole supervision." He was ordered to be under supervised probation until 2017.

    They should have strung the perp. up when they had the chance with the first murder. We as society are going to have to start making examples out of people in order to get our message across. He killed someone then got out on "good behavior". Something is wrong here. How is the trooper that was shot doing? Good luck on the hunt. Maybe the perp. will swing from the highest tree this time when he is caught.
