Michael Louviere - Police Officer Fatality - Louisiana

Michael Louviere
Police Officer Michael Louviere, age 26, died on January 20, 2017, on a street in Marrero, Louisiana.

Officer Louviere was a member of the Westwego Police Department. He had 18 months of service.

Westwego has a population of just over 8,500 and is a suburb of New Orleans.

At about 6:30 a.m., Michael was off duty and was driving home when he came across what seemed to be a crash scene on the roadway in Marrero. Michael was in uniform. 

The situation was the result of a domestic violence incident. A woman was injured in a vehicle and Michael was attempting to help her. A male approached Michael from behind and shot him in the back of the head.

Tragically, both Michael and the woman died at the scene.

The shooter fled the scene. The authorities are looking for Sylvester Holt, age 32, who was romantically involved with the woman. This man has a history of violence directed towards women and has had several protective orders filed against him in the past.  

If you have any information regarding this crime, please call the Westwego Police Department at 504-341-5428 or call your local police department. 

Michael was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who had served in Afghanistan. 
Michael, Patron Saint of the
Police, pray for Michael
Louviere and for those
who have lost him. 

The members of the Westwego Police Department are in mourning over the death of their young brother. Michael was a well-liked and well-respected member of his Department. He was one of the good guys. He will be forever remembered.

Michael's loved ones are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He was a caring man, a family man and a man of faith. He did his best. He will be forever mourned.

Michael is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members including his wife and young daughter and son.

Thank you for your service to America and to the community, Michael. 

Pray for all who reach out to help those in danger and who die because of it.

Only the lowest of snakes shoots a man in the head from behind.  

Pray for justice for Michael. 

God save us from the psychopaths. They are killing us, Father. Amen.

Pray that Michael is in Heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
