A DeSoto Parish Corporal has tragically passed away following a medical emergency while on-duty.

Late last night, DeSoto Parish Sheriff's Office took to social media to provide information on the sad passing or Cpl. Latoya Dedmond. According to DeSoto Parish, Cp. Dedmond was inside of her unit on Highway 5 when the undisclosed medical emergency took place.

At around 5:00 PM, 9-1-1 received a call for help from an unknown caller at that time. During the call, Cpl. Dedmond stated that she was having trouble breathing. Unfortunately, once EMS arrived on the scene, there wasn't much that they could have done. The first responders on the scene worked as hard as they could to save Cpl. Dedmond both on the scene and on the way to the hospital, but she unfortunately lost her life due to the medical event.
