Reserve Zachary Police Officer 41-year-old Christopher Lawton was killed after two suspects allegedly ran over him in a Walmart parking lot in Baker. East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Sid Gautreaux says Lawton was attempting to arrest 33-year-old Albert Franklin on active felony warrants. 30-year-old Ashley Chaney was also in the U-Haul when they fled the scene.
"When the suspect took off, he actually pinned (the officer) next to the shopping cart retriever and then actually ran over the officer. He was pronounced dead at the scene."
