Alabama police officer shot and killed


MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) - A Mobile, Alabama police officer has died after being shot by a man who earlier in the night shot and killed his ex-wife.

Officer Justin Billa was shot as he approached the suspect’s home.

Robert Hollie had been named as a person of interest in the earlier shooting.

Hollie was found dead in his home around 3 a.m. this morning.

Billa had a wife and a one-year-old child.

The shooting suspect is also connected to a woman's body found Tuesday evening on West Ridge Road, according to an email sent to city officials by the Mobile Police Department.

WPMI is familiar with Fonda Poellnitz, the woman who was allegedly murdered last night at the hands of the same man also suspected of killing Billa.

Back in September, WPMI interviewed Poellnitz about an alligator living in the waterway in her neighborhood.
