BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – The Latest on the shooting of law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge (all times local):
According to radio traffic, Baton Rouge police answered a report of a man with an assault rifle and were met by gunfire – and for several long minutes, didn’t know where it was coming from.
The radio exchanges were made public Sunday by the website Broadcastify.
Nearly 2½ minutes after the first “Officer down!” report, an officer on the scene is heard saying they don’t know the shooter’s location.
A statement that the location is known comes nearly six minutes after the first shots are reported.
About 30 seconds later, someone says shots are still being fired.
The recording lasts about 17 minutes and includes urgent calls for an armored personnel carrier called a BearCat.
It does not include word that the gunman is dead.
A law enforcement official familiar with the investigation into the shooting deaths of three Baton Rouge police officers says the shooter has been identified as Gavin Long.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation.
The official did not have any other details on Long.
