Horrible! Mobile police officer loses his life in shooting last night

A Mobile Police officer was shot and killed Tuesday night in Toulminville.

Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste didn't offer much information on his slain officer, saying he still needed to visit the University of South Alabama Medical and speak with Billa's wife. Battiste said police did not yet know if Hollie died from self-inflicted injuries or from the shots previously fired by police.

Fox News said the dead woman's daughter, Octavia Poellnitz, said there was was bad blood between her mother and and Mr Hollie.

The suspect opened fire on the officers about two hours later.

The suspect was then found dead inside the home.

Billa joined the force in January 2016. He was named Officer of the Month in June 2016.

Instead, Hollie began shooting and struck Billa. "That's my ideal of good policing and I feel like that's what the chief is working toward".

Officer Justin Billa, a former officer of the month, was fatally injured in the city of Mobile, after trying to detain a man wanted in connection with a murder. "And I make sure I do the same".

According to an email police sent city officials, the suspect in the officer's shooting is connected to a woman found dead earlier Tuesday night in a Mobile road. Officer Billa had been with the Mobile Police Department since 2016 and served our citizens with honor and distinction during that time.

As WALA-TV reporter Rudy Harper introduced the officer, he noted that Billa was "just six months into the job, a job he wants to do for the rest of his life". This morning we grieve for the family and friends of Officer Billa who have lost a father, a son, a husband and a trusted colleague. I'm praying for the officer.
