At least three police officers are dead and and three others are injured after a shooting in the Old Hammond area of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, officials said.
One suspect is also dead, but police believe two others may be at large, according to the East Baton Rouge Sheriffs Office.
Louisiana Gov. Jon Bel Edwards implied that multiple participants were possibly involved in either the planning or execution of the attack, in a statement released via social media.
“This is an unspeakable and unjustified attack on all of us at a time when we need unity and healing,” the governor said. “Rest assured, every resource available to the state of Louisiana will be used to ensure the perpetrators are brought swiftly to justice.”
