LSP: Man killed during officer-involved shooting had stolen gun and drugs

BATON ROUGE, La (LOCAL 33) (FOX 44) - According to Louisiana State Police, the man who was killed during an officer-involved shooting on Acadian Thruway was in possession of a stolen gun and drugs. 

Authorities said 35-year-old Jordan Frazier was initially pulled over due to a vehicle equipment violation. During the traffic stop, authorities said Frazier exited the vehicle with a .22 caliber semi-automatic long barrel pistol and began pointing it at a Baton Rouge police officer who was giving verbal commands. 

Authorities confirmed Baton Rouge police officer Yuseff Hamadeh fired two rounds, killing Frazier at the scene. He has since been placed on administrative leave as a standard procedure. 

After further investigation, authorities confirmed the gun was stolen from Ascension Parish and Frazier was in possession of ecstasy.
