A woman was killed by her ex-husband Tuesday night about an hour before he shot and killed a Mobile Police officer.

A police officer in Alabama has been shot and killed after a stand-off with a murder suspect, who also lost his life in the incident.

The shooter, Robert Holly, was found dead in his home around 3am Wednesday. Battiste said police do not know if Hollie died from self-inflicted injuries or from the shots previously fired by police. However, it was the death of Billa, 27, and father of a 1-year-old child, that caused an out pouring of grief among leaders in Alabama and Mobile.

Billa, who joined the force in 2016, was shot and killed in the line of duty Tuesday night while responding to a report of a body.

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.

"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".

He was interviewed by Fox10 in July 2016.

The shooter then barricaded himself inside a home and began shooting at multiple officers responding to the situation.

"We need to go back to helping people instead of just taking them to jail and creating bigger problems", he said. "That's my idea of good policing and I feel like that's what the chief is working towards".

"She tells me she loves me everyday before I leave for work and I make sure to do the same", he said.

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