Former Marine Gavin Long is the second former military member to murder multiple police officers the last 10+ days. Yesterday he joined Dallas murderer Micah Johnson in the annals of infamy when he gunned down six Baton Rouge officers, killing three, with an IWI Tavor SAR.
Gavin Long executed three cops in cold blood before being gunned down by a sharpshooting member of the Baton Rouge Police Department SWAT team that took him out from 100 yards away.
The chilling sequence of events began when Long, a former Marine, closed in on a car wash, seeking to sneak up on a police officer.
As Long snuck around, using “tactical” movements reflecting his training as a Marine, he ignored civilians, Col. Mike Edmonson, of the Louisiana State Police said.
The Baton Rouge police are operating under the assumption that he was planning to move on to BPD headquarters and take out more officers when he was dropped by a SWAT sniper.
