Two Police Officers Shot Dead In Baton Rouge

Two police officers are confirmed dead and as many as seven may have been shot in an early morning ambush in Baton Rouge, La. on Sunday.

This attack on law enforcement comes just one week after a sniper killed five officers in Dallas.


Two officers have been killed after as many as seven were shot in Baton Rouge Sunday morning, according to a CBS reporter who is in Baton Rouge and who had been covering the Alton Sterling shooting and the ensuing protests.

The officers were shot early Sunday – and – as of 9:30 a.m. a manhunt was on for the suspect or suspects.

A witness told WBRZ-TV that a man was dressed in black with his face covered shooting indiscriminately when he walked out between a convenience store and car wash across from Hammond Air Plaza.
