BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB/WWBT) -
Louisiana State Police is joining other law enforcement agencies across the country in mourning the loss of a member of Virginia State Police.
VSP said Master Trooper Junius A. Walker, 63, was killed in a shooting Thursday afternoon. The shooting happened on I-85 South in Dinwiddie County, VA. Walker was a 35-year veteran of Virginia State Police.
LSP is asking people to keep Walker's family in their prayers.
WWBT in Richmond, VA reported another trooper responded to a call of shots fired and found Walker's patrol car in the woods off the right side of the highway. The responding trooper saw a man standing outside Walker's car and repeatedly firing into it, according to VSP spokesperson Corinne Geller.
The responding trooper shot at the man, who ran into the woods. A suspect was arrested 40 minutes later by the Dinwiddie County Sheriff's Office and is now in Virginia State Police custody. Charges are pending and his name is not yet being released.
Walker was transported to MCV Hospital in Richmond, where he died.
Investigators said a weapon was recovered at the scene, but it has not been confirmed if it was the weapon used by the suspect.
The interstate was closed for several hours while detectives investigated the shooting.
