Deputies went to serve a warrant on Lawrence Bottoms. Bottoms was wanted in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, for being a felon in possession of gun. Deputies had been tipped that Bottoms was in a house near Bay St. Louis. Deputies reportedly called out for Bottoms for 15 minutes or more at the door of the house, which like many in the coastal community is elevated on stilts. Deputies then fired three rounds of tear gas. A woman named Allison Rainey came out, and deputies later arrested her. Bottoms reportedly jumped from a window of the house and ran into the woods. Deputies pursued him, Adam said, and when Bottoms emerged, he pulled a handgun and deputies shot and killed him.
