Baton Rouge shooting

Reports just coming in. Three officers reported killed, seven injured, some in critical condition. It's apparently not clear if this an ongoing situation or if the gunman(men?) has been contained.

Seems it's contained and the shooter is down.

“I walked out into the street to see what was going on, there was a man lying in the street," the witness said. "I assume he was dead because he wasn’t moving."

The witness tells us the shooting started before police arrived.

“This was not a come at police shooting," the witness said. "There were men out here shooting at each other before police ever got here.”

Baton Rouge police are now saying there were in fact multiple shooters. If I'm interpreting his statement correctly, only one of the shooters has been captured or killed.

There is also one, lone report that shooting began between multiple persons before police arrived.

911 ambush

A different story is emerging:

"A gun battle between citizens in Baton Rouge was underway Sunday morning (July 17) before police officers arrived on the scene near Airline and Old Hammond highways, a witness told WAFB-TV. Brady Vancel, who was working in the area, told the television station that he heard multiple gunshots before police arrived on the scene.

After hearing the shots, Vancel said he saw one citizen lying on the ground and a second one carrying an assault rifle before he sought refuge in a home nearby. He then hear more gunshot, apparently after police arrived on the scene."

That's exactly how early reports were characterizing the event: [www.wndu.com]

and as of 10 minutes ago NBC still is: [www.nbcnews.com]
as is CNBC and others have update their headlines and content



now it's beginning to look more like a death wish .

Obviously more good guys with guns were needed.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

24 hours later, still characterized as an ambush and any kind of " ongoing gun battle" was fruitcakes peddling fiction.
