Deputy Martha Woods-Shareef succumbed to injuries sustained when she was run over by a vehicle while investigating a burglary on Highway 20. She had responded to a local convenience store at 2:30 am after an alarm was activated at the store.

Dispatchers heard a scream over her radio, and then moments later a store employee used the radio to inform dispatchers that she had been injured and needed an ambulance. She was transported to Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, where she succumbed to injuries.

The suspect was arrested approximately 4 hours later hiding underneath a house.

Deputy Woods-Shareef had served with the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Department for 15 years. She is survived by her husband and daughter.
