UPDATE 6:32 P.M. ET: According to reports from CNN, the shooter has been identified as 29-year-old Gavin Long. It is unclear still if police are looking for a second and/or third shooter, as they had previously believed there to be on Sunday morning.

Also, President Barack Obama condemned the murders on Sunday, speaking from the White House:

"We as a nation have to be loud and clear that nothing justifies violence against law enforcement. Attacks on police are an attack on all of us and the rule of law that makes society possible."

He had previously called the attacks a "cowardly and reprehensible assault."



This is horrifying — and these things are happening way too often.

At least seven police officers have been shot, and at least three of those are dead, after a man opened fire on the cops in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Sunday morning, according to reports.

The officers who haven't been killed — apparently, that's four wounded — are all in critical condition in the hospital, according to sources.

Kip Holden, the mayor of East Baton Rouge Parish, said on Sunday that the scene was still very much active, telling reporters:

And even though we were already aware that two Americans had been killed in the tragedy, it's even more gut-wrenching now to learn more about the lives lost — in this case, a father and son taken far too soon.

Sean Copeland, 51, and his 11-year-old son, Brodie, were killed in the attack as they were enjoying the Bastille Day festivities in the middle of a family vacation to the south of France.

The father and son, from a small town in Texas, were watching fireworks and enjoying their time together with the rest of the family when tragedy struck, according to family friend Bill Bishop.

We also have learned the identity of the man behind the carnage; officials say he is Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, and it is now confirmed that police did kill him Thursday night to stop the attack.

He was a French citizen of Tunisian descent, and even though he had been known to police in connection with minor crimes and petty theft, nothing he had done had gotten him on France's terror watch list.
