A Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office (JPSO) deputy was shot outside an IHOP restaurant in Terrytown, Louisiana, Wednesday. One of the suspects who carried out the shooting was shot dead by officers who responded to the scene while another was wounded.

The shooting took place near the corner of Westbank Expressway and Terry Parkway around 10:45 p.m. local time (11:45 p.m. EDT). The unidentified deputy was rushed to University Medical Center for treatment following the shooting. The deputy underwent surgery and was expected to make a full recovery, CBS-affiliated WWL TV reported. There was no word on the wounded suspect.

Several police cars were on the scene. A body of a man, wearing a beige long-sleeve shirt and gray pants, was lying face-down outside the driver’s-side door of a silver sedan. One of the suspect’s foot was still inside the vehicle. Both the front and rear windows of the car's driver’s side were shattered. Multiple evidence cones marking shell casings were placed near the vehicle.

Behind another silver sedan parked nearby, a backpack and a bloody T-shirt were seen.

Kimberly Van Diepen of Pensacola, Florida, who was staying at the La Quinta Inn, located directly across the IHOP, was questioned by the officers. She told NOLA she was inside her room at the hotel when she heard the gunshots. She then saw police cars streaming toward the parking lot of IHOP. “I got scared, I’m not going to lie,” she said. “I heard the gunshots and then I immediately heard a boatload of sirens.”

No other details about the shooting were available.
