Public visitation Friday for slain NOPD Officer Daryle Holloway

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A public visitation will be held Friday for fallen New Orleans police officer Daryle Holloway.

The public is invited to celebrate Holloway's life Friday at Rhodes Funeral home, located at 3933 Washington Avenue. The visitation will be held from 3-6 p.m.

Holloway will be laid to rest Saturday after a funeral service at Saint Maria Goretti Church on Crowder Boulevard. Visitation begins at 7 a.m., followed by the funeral at 11 a.m.

Following the funeral, a police motorcade will escort Holloway's body to Saint Louis Cemetery No. 3 on Esplanade Avenue. Residents and businesses along the route are encouraged to show their support.

Holloway died Saturday (June 20) after he was allegedly shot by a man he was taking to Orleans Parish Prison. Travis Boys, 33, escaped after the shooting, but was captured the next day.

Boys shot Holloway through an access window of the caged portion of the police car, according to court documents. He fired one shot, striking the officer in the right flank.

Prior to the shooting, Boys was handcuffed in the back seat. His hands were cuffed behind his back. Boys somehow was able to bring his arms to the front, court documents state. There are still many unanswered questions, including why Boys had two guns on him while in police custody.

Holloway served 22 years on the force. He was close to Superintendent Michael Harrison, who describes him as a man full of life, who had many friends. Holloway leaves behind three children.
