"A 38-year-old police officer in New Orleans was shot and killed over the weekend by a man who was apparently incensed at being asked to wear a mask while at a high school basketball game.
"Martinus Mitchum, a Tulane University police officer, was killed on Friday night while working security at George Washington Carver High School, reports NOLA.com.
"Charged with first-degree murder in Mitchum’s death is John Shallerhorn, a 35-year-old who police say pulled a gun and punched an employee in the face after he was refused entry into the school’s gym without a mask.
"Shallerhorn, who reportedly also robbed a man of his chain before the shooting, could receive a life sentence or the death penalty if he is found guilty of killing the police officer."
