Mobile police officer shot, killed”

Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Baptiste, who had stood next to Stimpson at the press conference, commented on Billa's excellent record after he joined the department in January 2016, and asked that people not forget the Poellnitz family.

Police said the killer, identified as Robert Hollie, 72, killed his ex-wife, Fonda Poellnitz, 58, earlier Tuesday night near her home on West Ridge Road.

After placing the lifeless body of Fonda Poellnitz in the gutter about 100 feet from where it's believed he killed her, Hollie fled the scene in the same auto that had taken the couple to church earlier in the evening.

- An hourslong standoff in Alabama ended with both the suspect and a police officer dead.

That's where Hollie shot and killed Mobile Police Officer Justin Billa.

NBC 15 is familiar with Fonda Poellnitz, the woman who was murdered last night, at the hands of the same man who killed officer Billa. After an hours-long standoff, Hollie was found dead inside the home.

Fox News said the dead woman's daughter, Octavia Poellnitz, said there was was bad blood between her mother and and Mr Hollie.

"Billa has great attention to detail skills and shows commitment daily to providing a professional level of law enforcement service to the city of Mobile". It is unknown how he died, if it was self inflicted or by police.

"Why would you do that to my momma", she said, lashing out at her father.

Battiste said police plan to provide an update around midday Wednesday. He was named the department's officer of the month that June, winning a commendation for investigating complaints of robberies committed by a man whom he later arrested.

He was interviewed by Fox10 in July 2016.

As the officer was introduced in the TV segment, the reporter noted that Billa was 'just six months into the job, a job he wants to do for the rest of his life'.
