At Least Three Baton Rouge Police Officers Dead, Three More Wounded By Shooter At 'Active Scene'

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.

Police received a call this morning of a "suspicious person" walking down a Baton Rouge road with an "assault rifle," and when officers arrived on the scene, the man apparently opened fire.

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:

13-Year-Old Boy Among Group Arrested For Stealing Guns — Allegedly For A Planned Attack On Baton Rouge Police!

We're just glad no one on either side died.

Racial tensions are currently reaching an all-time high throughout the country as more and more Black Lives Matter supporters have begun protesting the senseless killings of black men at the hands of police.

Alton Sterling and Philando Castile are just two high profile examples of recent police brutality, and despite the deadly Dallas Sniper shooting that claimed five lives last week, Baton Rouge is still facing backlash from its residents.

In fact, the Baton Rogue Police Department arrested three men — including a 13-year-old boy — on Tuesday after four suspects robbed a pawn shop of eight handguns — allegedly to use them on police.

Police Chief Carl Dabdie addressed the arrests in a press conference claiming the suspects posed a "substantial, credible threat" to his men, saying:

Take note, Beyoncé!

Solange isn't the only celebrity speaking out about the Black Lives Matter movement following the recent high profile police killings of black men… but she is one of the few actually doing something to help.

That's because the 30-year-old R&B singer and her husband Alan Ferguson were spotted taking part in peaceful protests in Baton Rouge over the weekend in honor of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

But that's not all — while Solange's in-person appearance showed how important equal rights truly are to her, she made sure to drive that point home on social media with a message against police brutality on Twitter!

In a series of tweets on Sunday, Solange recounted how the only violence she experienced while walking in the Louisiana march on Saturday came from authorities, saying:

These Are The 2 Cops Involved In The Shooting & Killing Of Alton Sterling

no title

If the real courts won't do anything… maybe the court of public opinion will.

As we previously reported, Alton Sterling died early Tuesday morning when two Baton Rouge, Louisiana police officers pinned him down and either one or both shot him multiple times.

Since Alton's family — including his five children — will never be able to see their father again, we thought it was only fair that we share a little bit about the men who ended his life.

When will enough be enough?

As you've surely heard by now, Alton Sterling became the latest victim of police brutality early Tuesday morning when he was shot at least five times by Louisiana cops.

The 37-year-old was selling CDs outside of a convenience store in Baton Rouge when two officers responded to a call at around 12:35 a.m. that a man matching Alton's description was threatening others with a gun.

However, video surfaced later on Tuesday that seemingly showed just how violently the two officers treated Alton before fatally shooting the father-of-five in the back after he was already pinned down with his hands restrained.

Thankfully, Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards is not going to let another senseless murder simply pass by unnoticed.

In a statement Wednesday morning, John announced that the Department of Justice will officially be investigating the latest case of the Black Lives Matter movement, saying:
