They did a great job today.”

Alexandria Police Chief Jerrod King added, “I want to give a huge thanks to the members of the SWAT team and the Crisis Intervention Team for the way they handled themselves today.

Man Arrested for Shooting at APD Officers

Alexandria, La. (Feb. 7, 2020) – An Alexandria man has been arrested and charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder of a police officer in connection with an incident that occurred Feb. 3 in the 2900 block of Monroe Street in which two Alexandria Police Officers were fired upon.

Kartavious Jacobs, 23, was taken into custody without incident Friday in the 100 block of Kathryn Street by members of the Alexandria Police SWAT team. The U.S. Marshals Service Violent Offender Task Force assisted in the investigation.

In the Feb. 3 event, officers were attempting to interview two suspects when the pair began to flee on foot. At least one of the suspects fired at officers as he was running away. The officers were not injured and several shell casings and a handgun were recovered at the time.

“I’m pleased that an arrest has been made so quickly,” said Alexandria Mayor Jeffrey W. Hall. “As a community, we need to make it clear that we will not tolerate gun violence, and we certainly won’t tolerate attacks on our police officers. And we want to make it clear that our officers and our law enforcement partners will work together and do whatever it takes to track down offenders and bring them to justice.”

Alexandria Police Chief Jerrod King echoed Mayor Hall’s comments. “I want to thank our officers for their hard work and dedication to resolving this case,” King said. “Every case of gun-related violence is unacceptable, but when you have an individual who is brazen enough to fire at police officers, that’s another level of criminality. I appreciate the assistance we received from the U.S. Marshals Service, and I am extremely proud of our SWAT team for effecting a safe resolution in response to this very violent criminal act.”

Alexandria, La. (Jan. 28, 2020) — Alexandria Police Chief Jerrod King will return to full, active duty on January 30.

“I am pleased to have this matter resolved, and I am looking forward to having Chief King back on the job serving the citizens of Alexandria,” said Alexandria Mayor Jeffrey W. Hall.

King was placed on paid administrative leave Jan. 3.

“Ideally, our personnel matters are handled internally, without public comment.” Hall said. “I understand Chief King is a very visable public figure, but he still deserves the same respect and privacy as any other city employee. In this case, however, there has been so much coverage and speculation in the media, the Chief and I agreed it was in the city’s best interest to clarify this matter so there is no misinformation.”

Hall explained the City followed an investigation process required by state law and acknowledged Chief King was represented by legal counsel throughout the process, which, Hall stated, is not out of the ordinary. The investigation determined a violation of the city’s social media policy occurred and warranted a brief suspension.

“The Chief and I had a great conversation earlier this week and as far as I’m concerned, this matter is behind us.” Hall stated the city will not provide any further comment on this matter.

“I understand my violation, and I apologize for the disruption it caused in our community and police department,” Chief King said. “Every APD officer is expected to know and follow all of the city’s rules and protocols. As Police Chief, I believe I should set the standard and be an example for our officers.”

“I tell our officers everyday, we’re not perfect. We will all make mistakes. Even leaders. But we learn from those mistakes and come back stronger from the experience. I appreciate the support I have received from my fellow APD officers and from the community. And I appreciate the support I have received from Mayor Hall and his confidence in my ability to learn and grow from this. I am looking forward to working with the Mayor, getting back to work and doing everything I can to ensure the safety of Alexandria and its citizens.” Chief King stated he will not comment any further on this matter.
