2016 Shooting Findings Released

Dec 6, 2017

East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore released the findings in the 2016 officer-involved shooting death of 48-year-old Terrell Walker. Cops believe Walker shot and killed his girlfriend on Essen Lane, then fled. Walker was later shot and killed by deputies after an extensive manhunt. Moore played several 911 calls from the incident on Essen Lane.


Moore says when Walker left the scene the first time, he soon returned and fired into a crowd of people and paramedics who were treating the mortally-wounded girlfriend, April Peck. Moore says one of the EMS workers recalled hearing the suspect yell numerous threats as he was firing shots at those assisting the injured female.


Moore said Walker’s blood-alcohol level was .028, and he had traces of methamphetamine, hydrocodone, PCP and marijuana in his system at the time of his death. Moore says there was no probable cause to present the case to a Grand Jury in the matter of the death of Walker.
