Mobile officer killed, suspect found dead after standoff

Slain Mobile Police Officer Justin Billa

Police surrounded the residence and exchanged fire with Hollie, before entering the premises about three hours later to find the man dead.

A two-year veteran of the Mobile Police Department was fatally shot Tuesday night in the line of duty during a standoff with a man wanted for questioning in the death earlier of his ex-wife, authorities said. That's when Holly started shooting at police, and Officer Billa was hit.

At least one officer fired shots at the scene. An officer tells Nexstar affiliate News 5 the barricade situation "has been resolved" at around 2:45 a.m.

Police have not disclosed Poellnitz's probable cause of death. Hollie, who was Poellantz's ex-husband, was immediately identified as a person of interest in her murder.

"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.

Bad news comes out of the city of Mobile.

Following the announcement of his achievement, Billa was honored at the Officer of the Month luncheon, held in Azalea Golf Course Club, and sponsored by Midtown Optimist Club in June 2016.

Billa joined the force in January 2016. He spoke about his intentions as a police officer and goals for the force as a whole.

"So I just want to say that my thoughts and prayers go out to the Mobile community and the Mobile Police Department especially", Chief Anderson said. After the shooting Officer Billa was transported to the hospital, where he died just after 2am.
