Michigan man picks wrong city to commit robbery in.

He will be leaving town in a body bag.

A Michigan man who robbed a Bossier City business will be leaving town in a body bag.  Police shot and killed 58-year-old Larry Allan Jerrils, 58, of Walker, Michigan after he robbed the Payless ShoeSource store in the 2000 block of Airline Drive, according to Bossier City Police Spokesperson Mark Natale.

Bossier City Police responded to a silent alarm call at the business just before 8:00 p.m. on Thursday night when they made contact with the suspected robber, who presented a firearm with deadly consequences.

Natale says Jerrils ran from the officers out of the store north through the parking lot and around a building when he turned towards the officers while brandishing a firearm.  Big mistake. Police fired upon the suspect killing him at the scene.

The officers involved in the incident are Andrew Nichols and Kevin Wooten.  Nichols joined the Bossier City Police Department in November of 2013 after serving two years as a law enforcement officer with another agency. Wooten has been with the Bossier City Police Department since September of 2013 after serving one year as a law enforcement officer with another agency.

Both officers are assigned to the Patrol Division and have been placed on administrative leave pending investigations by the Internal Affairs Division and Criminal Investigations Division, which are standard procedures in officer involved shootings.

Here’s an interesting thought. Why is it that Louisiana and neighboring state Mississippi are always on the bottom of every national ranking involving virtually every aspect of a state’s quality of life? Yet casino gambling is widespread throughout both states at a level not found any place else in America outside of Las Vegas.

On April 28, citizens of Shreveport face a choice: Fund basic city services or plunge the city into fiscal chaos. It would have been inconceivable 20 years ago that routine tax renewals to fund the fire and police departments and other basic city services would not have the collective support of the city’s business, civic and political leadership.
