A police officer from Mobile, Alabama, was shot and killed on Tuesday night, February 20, in Toulminville, as he approached a man suspected of shooting his ex-wife to death.
Police said the standoff began around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday when suspect Robert Hollie barricaded himself inside a home in Mobile's Toulminville community.
It was not immediately determined whether gunfire from police caused Hollie's death or whether it was a self-inflicted wound that ended his life.
The slain officer is survived by a wife and a 1-year-old son, shown in this Blue Lives Matter tweet. He was named Mobile police officer of the month in June 2016, after he successfully investigated a string of robberies on North Ann Street.
Hollie was at a house on Avondale Court when Billa approached and was shot, Fox10reported.
The shooting suspect is also connected to a woman's body found Tuesday evening on West Ridge Road, according to an email sent to city officials by the Mobile Police Department.
The suspect opened fire on the officers about two hours later.
After joining the task force in January, it did not take long for Billa to gain recognition in his department. Her daughter, Octavia Poellnitz, had identified Hollie as the likely suspect to WKRG-TV before Battiste spoke to news outlets.
"She tells me she loves me every day before I leave for work". Officer Billa's death affects more than just the Mobile Police Department. "I offer my prayers in addition to the full support of the city as we deal with this tragedy".
