There will be and is a ton of news on this and many links in the comments. But it deserves a post on its own.
BATON ROUGE – Two Baton Rouge Police officers and a East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office deputy are dead following a Sunday morning shooting on Airline Highway.
Another three officers have been reported wounded, but the extent of those injuries has yet to be made available.
Authorities have confirmed that one suspect is dead while two others remain at large. Law enforcement encouraged any citizens who see anything suspicious to contact police as soon as possible. Residents were encouraged to stay indoors until the remaining suspects are in custody. Police said the public should keep an eye out for suspicious subjects in black or camouflage clothing and notify authorities immediately.
Police detained two suspects in Addis and transported them back to the BRPD Violent Crimes Unit. Sources said the subjects headed to the Port Allen Walmart to change out of all black clothing before they were taken into custody. They’re being questioned in relation to the deadly shooting.
(Last I heard, 7 officers were shot and 3 killed)
