God rest your soul Deputy Chief Abney. According to the findings of the investigation, the incident that led to Abney’s death took occurred on October 30, 2020, in the French Quarter, when he was working a patrol shift.
The bullet was able to penetrate his skull and become embedded within it, causing him to lose consciousness. Broken glass fell on Officer Brook Duncan IV, who was also riding in the vehicle with Abney at the time of the incident, causing him to get injuries. Abney was not the only person in the vehicle to sustain injuries.
