Justin Billa, Alabama Police Officer, Killed By 'Person Of Interest' In Standoff

BREAKING MPD officer shot has died suspect also dead

Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste identified the Mobile police officer as Justin Billa who was rushed to the University of South Alabama medical where he died following the shooting. That's where Hollie shot and killed Mobile Police Officer Justin Billa.

WPMI reports Hollie was found dead in his barricaded home around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning after a standoff with a SWAT team.

The website went on to add that "according to his commanding officer, Billa has great attention to detail skills and shows commitment daily to providing a professional level of law enforcement service to the city of Mobile". Officer Billa had been with the Mobile Police Department since 2016 and served our citizens with honor and distinction during that time. It is unknown how he died or if it was self-inflicted or by police. "That's my ideal of good policing and I feel like that's what the chief is working towards".

At least one officer fired shots back at Hollie, AL.com reported.

Octavia Poellnitz, Hollie and Fonda's daughter, was distraught after hearing the news of her mother's death.

"She tells me she loves me every day before I leave for work".

As the officer was introduced in the TV segment, the reporter noted that Billa was 'just six months into the job, a job he wants to do for the rest of his life'.

Officer Billa, who had been on the force for two years, later succumbed to his injuries in hospital. Officer Billa's death affects more than just the Mobile Police Department.
