Corporal Shane Totty was killed in a motorcycle crash in the 6400 block of Jones Creek Road while escorting a funeral procession.
His police motorcycle collided with another vehicle that pulled out in front of him at approximately 2:40 pm. Bystanders and responding officers performed CPR before he was transported to a local hospital. He succumbed to his injuries a short time later.
Corporal Totty had only returned to full duty several months earlier after being shot in the face by a mental subject in February 2018.
Corporal Totty had served with the Baton Rouge Police Department for 4-1/2 years. He is survived by his wife and young child.
