NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

New Orleans Police Department Superintendent Michael Harrison believes that Travis Boys brought a gun into the squad car of Officer Daryle Holloway before killing him.

Boys was frisked after his arrest early Saturday morning, but police said no guns were found on the 33-year-old suspect.

However, that might not have been the case.

"We did realize that he brought a gun into the car and that he had to have done it some kind of way so we're working to remind our officers of safety concerns for their own survival," Harrison said.

Despite what Harrison said, investigators are still trying to determine the possibility the gun might have already been in the police vehicle.

Two guns were found in Holloway's squad car after his murder, a .38 caliber and a .40 caliber. Harrison says the .38 caliber was confiscated after Boys' arrest Saturday and should have been put into evidence had Holloway made it to the evidence room.

Harrison said right now all officers are being reminded of the policies they need to abide by when frisking a suspect and confiscating evidence.

A vigil is being held Tuesday night for Holloway in the 1300 block of Foy Street. The Hard Head Riders organized the event, which is open to the public, and will ride their bikes over to Holloway's family's house on Kerelec Street.
