PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - A Haitian police officer has been killed by multiple gunshots as he patrolled a rough section of the country’s capital on a motorcycle.

Haitian National Police spokesman Frantz Lerebours identifies the slain officer as David Dume.

There have been no arrests in Friday’s killing. Lerebours says an investigation is under way.

Photos taken of the slain officer show him lying face down in a street in his uniform. His police motorcycle lies nearby.

He was killed while working in Martissant, a troubled district long known for gang activity.
