Three police officers have been shot dead in Baton Rouge, La., and others may have been wounded, authorities said Sunday. The three officers were shot near the department headquarters, Baton Route Mayor Kip Holden told MSNBC. At least four others were injured in the shooting, he said. “They are investigating,” he said. “Right now we are trying to get our arms around everything.” Two Baton Rouge police officers and one East Baton Rouge sheriff’s deputy are dead, according to WBRZ-TV’s Michael Vinsanau. The gunman was shot, a Louisiana State Police spokesman said, but his condition was not immediately clear.
A country that lives in such violence daily is doomed to a violent end.
