State Police are investigating the case of a Lafayette Police Officer involved shooting. LSP Trooper Stephen Hammons says law enforcement received a complaint on Sunday regarding an attempted suicide. He says when officers arrived, they found 34-year-old Harold Bastin in the yard of the house,
"Bastin who was armed with a hand gun engaged officers and an officer with the Lafayette Police Department then fatally shot Bastin," Hammons said.
Bastin was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lafayette Parish Coroner. No officers were injured and the case remains under investigation.
The FBI said today it is "aware" that someone has leaked nude photos purporting to be pictures of dozens of A-list celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton and is "addressing the matter."
The scandal over hacked nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and other celebrities has renewed focus on a maverick website that has been linked to pornography, activists hackers like Anonymous, violent memes that include Slender Man, as well as online pranks.
