Breaking News: 7 Police Officers Shot and 3 Dead In Banton Rouge, Louisiana . by Abayhormy(m): 4:52pm On Jul 17, 2016
At least seven officers were injured and at least three of them are feared dead in a shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on sunday, 17th July, 2016, a source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN.

Police received a call of "suspicious person walking down Airline Highway with an assault rifle," the source said. When police arrived, the man opened fire.
The remaining officers are hospitalized in critical condition, the source said.
Kip Holden, the mayor-president of East Baton Rouge Parish, said authorities were still trying to get a handle on the situation, but added, "The count is three officers dead possibly."
The victims may include police officers and sheriff's deputies.

Update:
One shooter down. Two more possibly believed to be at large. Identity of shooters not yet ascertained . A conspiracy/planed attack on police, suspected.

This is coming two days after the burial of the afro-amenrican man, Alton Sterling, 37, killed by police earlier this month which has sparked protests across America.

Too much guns in America. America needs to take some giant steps towards restoring peace and calming frail nerves. RIP to the officers. We pray for peace.
