Suspect arrested in the killing of a Louisiana police officer

Suspect Grover Deandre Cannon was wanted not only in the fatal shooting of Officer Thomas LaValley on Wednesday but also in connection with another shooting in July, Louisiana State Police said.

A suspect wanted in the shooting death of a Shreveport police officer was taken into custody after a round-the-clock manhunt, Louisiana State Police said Thursday.

Major Doug Cain of the Louisiana State Police identified the suspect as Grover Deandre Cannon and said he was wanted not only in the fatal shooting of Officer Thomas LaValley on Wednesday but also in connection with another shooting in July.

The capture was the result of efforts by the FBI, the Shreveport Police Department, the U.S. Marshals Service, Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, and Louisiana State Police. The FBI offered a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to Cannon’s arrest.

LaValley, 29, was shot multiple times while answering a call about a suspicious person at a home in the city’s Queensborough neighborhood.
