Motorcade planned to honor fallen NOPD Officer Daryle Holloway

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A police motorcade is planned Saturday for slain New Orleans police officer Daryle Holloway.

The motorcade will escort Holloway's body from St. Maria Goretti Church in New Orleans East (7300 Crowder Blvd.) to his final resting place at St. Louis Cemetery No. 3.

The motorcade will follow an 11 a.m. funeral at the church.

Residents and businesses along the route are invited to show their support to the fallen NOPD officer. The motorcade route is as follows:

  • Following the end of the service, the procession will exit right onto Crowder Blvd. and proceed to the I-10 West on-ramp.
  • Turn right onto I-10West to Louisa Street exit
  • Exit Louisa Street and turn right onto Old Gentilly Road.
  • Old Gentilly Rd. to France Rd. (turn right) over bridge
  • France Road, continue straight to Poland Avenue
  • Poland Avenue to N. Claiborne Avenue
  • N. Claiborne Avenue to 3900 N. Claiborne (5th District Police Station), proceed slowly for salute by 5th district
  • Continue on N. Claiborne toward Elysian Fields to St. Bernard Ave.
  • Left onto N. Claiborne to Esplanade Avenue
  • Esplanade Avenue toward Broad Street
  • Stop at 3421 Esplanade Street

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.
