LAFAYETTE — A man has been sentenced to 57 years in prison for 12 charges, including the attempted murder of a Lafayette police officer.
The man, Trevor Bowie, was shot by Lafayette police officers during an exchange on April 21, 2020.
According to information from the Lafayette Police Department, during a domestic disturbance investigation in the 800 block of North 7th Street in Lafayette, officers met with a woman who said Bowie left the location with a stolen handgun.
Officers Khoury Elias and Israel Salazar encountered Bowie in a parking lot in the 600 block of North 6th Street in Lafayette. During the encounter, Bowie pointed the handgun at the officers, who then fired their department-issued handguns and shot Bowie.
Elias and Salazar were placed on administrative leave during an investigation into the shooting but returned to work when wrongdoing was ruled out.
