Police officer fatally shot during standoff in Alabama

An hourslong standoff in Alabama ended with both the suspect and a police officer dead.

Earlier Tuesday night, police in Mobile say Holly and shot and killed his ex-wife, Fonda Poellnitz, at her home on Redmond Street, then went back to his house.

WPMI reports Hollie was found dead in his barricaded home around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning after a standoff with a SWAT team. Battiste said police did not yet know if Hollie died from self-inflicted injuries or from the shots previously fired by police. He was taken to the University of South Alabama Medical Center. He is survived by his wife and a one-year-old son.

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.

Billa had "great attention to detail skills and shows commitment daily to providing a professional level of law enforcement service to the city of Mobile", his commanding officer said.

In a 2016 interview with Fox-affiliated WALA-TV, Billa talked about his idea of policing and reducing the rate of crimes in the community.

"He didn't love my momma", she said. "There's a lot that has to be done as we go through the process".
