Louisiana State Police has identified the suspect in yesterday’s officer-involved shooting as 33 year- old Bryan Britnell of Eunice.

Shortly after the officers arrived in the area, they stopped a car with the suspect inside, the spokesman said. At some point during the traffic stop, the suspect allegedly brandished a firearm. The suspect was shot by at least one police officer and was transported to the hospital. He remained hospitalized Friday afternoon.
