NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A fundraiser is planned Tuesday night for fallen New Orleans Police Officer Daryle Holloway.

Holloway died 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. 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.

Rock n’ Bowl will play host to Tuesday night’s fundraiser. It takes place from 6-11 p.m. Admission is $20.

The New Orleans Police and Justice Foundation have set up a fund for the family of Holloway. For more information on how you can make a donation to the Holloway family, click here.
