According to CBS News,
Sources told CBS News the suspect has been identified as Gavin Eugene Long, a 29-year-old black man.
Long was shot and killed by Baton Rouge police, but not before killing three officers and wounding three more, one critically.
While little is known about him yet, that will surely change in the hours and days to come.
Gov. John Bel Edwards asked the public to pray for the officers involved and their families. He is expected to hold a press conference on the issue later this afternoon.
“This is an unspeakable and unjustified attack on all of us at a time when we need unity and healing,” Edwards said in a statement. “Rest assured, every resource available to the State of Louisiana will be used to ensure the perpetrators are swiftly brought to justice.”
