BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – Clay Schexnayder, Louisiana Speaker of the House, gave a statement on behalf of the entire Louisiana House of Representatives on a Louisiana State Police trooper who was found dead Saturday.
“I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Master Trooper Adam Gaubert, who on Saturday was killed in the line duty as he was ambushed while in his patrol unit. Trooper Gaubert was a dedicated and faithful 19-year veteran of the Louisiana State Police department.
One of the most trying times I have in serving as Speaker of the House is when I hear that one of our police officers has had their life taken needlessly. It’s a reminder of the many dangers our officers face every day in responding to calls and putting their lives on the line to protect us. Master Trooper Gaubert will forever be remembered for his courageousness and selflessness in serving the people of our state.
The entire Louisiana House of Representatives grieves the loss of Trooper Gaubert and, our condolences and prayers are with the trooper’s family and colleagues and all of those who were fortunate to know him.”Louisiana House Speaker Clay Schexnayder
