New Orleans Police and several law enforcement agencies have cleared a perimeter set up Saturday afternoon in the St. Roch neighborhood while searching for 33-year-old Travis Boys, who is wanted for the shooting death of NOPD officer Daryle Holloway. The perimeter was been set up roughly from Elysian Fields to N. Derbigny street along Franklin Avenue with several roads in the area closed down, according to Fox 8 reporters on the scene.

Police say that Holloway was shot in his cruiser around 8 a.m. Saturday while transporting Boys, who was arrested for aggravated battery. Following the shooting, Holloway's unit crashed near the intersection of North Claiborne and Elysian Fields. 

Crews are still actively searching for Boys. If you have any information that could help locate Travis Boys, you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111. Crimestoppers announced a $10,000 dollar reward for anyone with information on the whereabouts of Travis Boys. Saturday night, the ATF offered an additional $10,000 to the Crimestoppers reward, bumping the total reward to $20,000.
