A New Orleans police officer was shot in the face after being ambushed by a man in a pedicab. 

The officer, who has not been named, was shot while he was in his patrol cruiser in the French Quarter at about 4.30pm Friday, while people were just beginning their Halloween celebrations.  

Police said that the officer and his partner were in their cruiser near St. Philip and Royal street when a man, who was riding in the back of the pedicab, shot at the cruiser.

One of the officers was shot in the face during the incident. He is in stable condition, but the bullet is lodged in his skull, police said. 

The alleged shooter fled the scene, but was taken into custody in a nearby street. 

Police said the shooter appeared to be having some kind of a medical episode at the time he was arrested and was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
