Simone Veal, the wife of Sylvester Holt who's a person of interest in a shooting that killed a Westwego police officer, has been identified as the second victim in the case.

Public records suggest Veal and Holt married in 2012.

Veal's mother told The New Orleans Advocate that her daughter grew up in Illinois, studied at Xavier University here in New Orleans and was working in pharmaceuticals. A Xavier spokesman on Friday said he could not confirm whether Veal had studied at the school.

Several Gretna Police Department squad cars were on the West Bank levee of the Mississippi River late Friday morning, responding to reports that someone was threatening to jump off the Crescent City Connection. Two Sheriff's Office helicopters flew overhead.

Asked if the activity was related to the search for Sylvester Holte, who has been named as a person of interest in the fatal shooting Friday of a Westwego police officer and a female victim, Assistant Gretna Police Chief Anthony Christiana said, "Apparently, that's the information we are obtaining."

A man in a blue shirt and shorts was standing on the support beams under the bridge, with police officers looking down on him. It appeared the man was talking.
