In Jackson, Miss., officers have searched at least two Greyhound buses that arrived from Louisiana in a manhunt for Grover D. Cannon, the suspected cop killer.

According to UPI, more than 70 police officials, helicopters and remote-controlled drones responded to the shooting and began a massive search for the gunman.

From USA Today: Cannon is wanted for first-degree murder in the Wednesday night death of Officer Thomas LaValley, 29, who joined the department in 2011. Cannon also is wanted for attempted second-degree murder for a July 15 shooting, Shreveport police Chief Willie Shaw said.

“I suggest he turn himself in because we are looking for him, and I mean we in the broadest sense of the word,” Shaw said in a morning news conference. “This will be resolved as soon as possible. We will not rest. He is our No. 1 priority to locate.”

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal released the following statement via Twitter: “This morning, our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the Shreveport Police officer killed in the line of duty last night. As they continue to search for the suspected murderer, we have offered Shreveport PD the full resources of the State Police. Our law enforcement officers deserve our support as they place themselves in harm’s way everyday to keep our communities safe.”

Officer LaValley had served with the Shreveport Police Department for four years.
