from TRU News:
Police release new images that show Gavin Long, a U.S. Marine veteran, bypassing civilians as he ambushed and killed three Baton Rouge police officers.
Police say these newly released images show Baton Rouge gunman Gavin Long carrying out his deadly attack against police officers.
They say the U.S. Marine veteran bypassed civilians as he searched for his targets in uniform.
“He was looking for locations to specifically target police officers. No doubt in my mind. There is no doubt whatsoever that these officers were intentionally targeted and assassinated.”
Three officers were killed in the ambush.
29-year-old Long was shot and killed by a SWAT team marksman who fired a single shot from 100 yards away.
Three other officers were injured during the rampage.
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch says more must be done to prevent such racially charged assaults.
“As you try to advance it, these incidents occur, and it seems as if it pulls us back into a period when we’re so far apart.”
Police believe Long, who was armed with two rifles and a pistol, was planning to head to the Baton Rouge Police Department to take more lives.
