UPDATE 1:00pm:

  •  3 officers have now been confirmed killed, 3 others were wounded.

  • 1 suspect is dead, but police remain on the lookout for 2 other suspects.


A man opened fire on police in Baton Rouge this morning and authorities report at least 5 people have been injured, and and at 2 others have died.

The police officer’s were from the Baton Rouge police department and the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s office.

While we don’t know the disposition of the shooter, the police report that the scene is “contained,” which likely means that the shooter is no longer a threat.

From CNN:

Kip Holden, the mayor-president of East Baton Rouge Parish, said Sunday authorities were still trying to get a handle on the situation, but added, “The count is three officers dead possibly.”
“There is still an active scene. They are investigating,” he said. “Right now we are trying to get our arms around everything.”
Earlier, Holden had said the shooter is believed to be down as well. But a source told CNN it’s an “active working scene.”
“Everything is moving fast and I have not been able to verify everything,” Holden said.
