Officer Robicheaux was shot and killed without warning when a man walked into the Morgan City Police Department headquarters and opened fire with a shotgun. Officer Robicheaux, who was dispatching that evening, was struck in the back and killed.
The 16 year-old suspect told arresting officers that he shot Officer Robicheaux because his mother told him she was mistreated by the officer while in jail for public drunkenness. The suspect was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison March 24, 1958.
