Baton Rouge readies for funerals of 3 slain police officers

Long approached Garofola, shot him dead, then killed the wounded officer. Using eye witness accounts and surveillance video, Louisiana State Police Colonel Mike Edmonson traced the killer's movements on a blown up map of the area.

Obama said there is great interest among police departments nationwide in receiving additional training to deal with active-shooter events and to decrease tensions before violence occurs, but that more resources will be necessary. Gerald's funeral is set for Friday morning.

Baton Rouge Police Officers Matthew Gerald and Montrell Jackson and East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Deputy Brad Garafola died in the shootout.

The single gunshot that killed Long, 29, was sacked by an officer from about 100 yards away, police have said as they deepened their investigation into the second racially charged armed assault on US law enforcement this month.

Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane has been arrested on misdemeanor criminal trespass charges, according to the Buffalo News . Police allege Kane yanked the hair and grabbed the throat of one of the women while trying to push her into his auto .

The ambush came a week and a half after another former us serviceman espousing militant black nationalist views cut down five Dallas officers in a sniper attack that shattered an otherwise peaceful protest denouncing the fatal police shootings of two black men days earlier, one of them in Baton Rouge.

Over about 10 minutes, Long carries on a mostly one-sided conversation with a man he seems to have just met as they drive along Plank Road in northern Baton Rouge, about two miles from the convenience store where Alton Sterling was shot and killed by a police officer.

The killing was captured on cellphone video and widely circulated online. Jackson was black, as was the gunman. Three more officers were wounded, one of them critically.

The most seriously injured deputy, Nicholas Tullier, is fighting for his life, Gautreaux said, while the other injured deputy, Bruce Simmons, is in serious condition. The gunman was killed at the scene. "And it all needs to stop, everything". "What we don't need are outsiders bringing their propaganda and upsetting what we're trying to heal". Gerald, was a former Marine who enlisted in the Army after the September 11 attacks and also served in Iraq in 2009. He will be buried at the Louisiana National Cemetery for veterans. He also served in Iraq.

Cabral said he last communicated with Gerald a week ago via text messages in which they encouraged each other to stay safe. "They're made to serve".

Jackson's father-in-law, Lonnie Jordan, called him a "gentle giant" - tall and stout and formidable-looking, but with a peaceful disposition.

"As we bind up our wounds, we must come together to ensure that those who try to divide us do not succeed", Obama said in the letter.

"I'm exhausted physically and emotionally", Jackson wrote in a Facebook post. "In uniform I get nasty hateful looks and out of uniform some consider me at threat". He added that Garafola's family plans to have him cremated after the funeral and will also receive a customized burial urn. Some people would run. "But these gentlemen leave their families knowing something can happen", Parker said.
