Antoine Tobias Jr. (7394)

12/25/2012: Antoine Tobias was shot in a gun battle with deputies on December 25, 2011 and died on January 20, 2012. Deputies had responded to a call from a woman who said that her family had locked themselves inside a home to avoid her son-in-law, Tobias, who was armed with a handgun and trying to break into the home. By the time deputies arrived, Tobias had reportedly forced his way inside the residence. Tobias allegedly fired multiple rounds at deputies as they attempted to help Tobias' family members escape from the bathroom of the home. A K-9 dog also bit him. Tobias was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on Jan. 2 after being released from University Hospital, where he'd been treated for his wounds that police said weren't life-threatening. Police said Tobias told medical staff at the Jail Medical Clinic that he was having breathing issues, fell on the floor, and stopped, so the nurse and jail staff began CPR. Tobias appeared to be revived by the CPR and was taken by ambulance to the St. Tammany Parish Hospital, but was pronounced dead at about 1:20 a.m. on January 20, 2012.
