Actually, it is being reported that a call was put in that there was a man walking with an assault rifle. As they responded, the person opened fire.

1. Call to police to bring police
2. Attack police
3. If he is not dead, there was a getaway car

These are guerrilla tactics. These are not going to end.



source, or is this just conjecture to add fuel?


Multiple sources have reported there was a man with a gun call put out. I haven't seen anything else about what drew the initial LE presence to the area.

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.”

Hmm. Maybe the cops showed up to something and then got killed.

Maybe that something was a group of shooters starting shooting to lure the cops in, and then when they came started picking them off.

The timing of it, the number of cops dead, the calls for gunning down police in Baton Rouge, its just too incredible.

Is it just a coincidence that this happens one day after the new black panthers opened a baton rouge chapter?

Let's make this really simple. A scenario. Cops go poof. No more. We have no local authorities in blue.

Do you see a better world? I see chaos. People mostly self-govern, but deep down they lay low because they fear the repercussions enforced by law. Without law there is lawlessness, and then the gangs/cartels take over and push for black markets out in the streets.

That's not any version of progress I'm down with.

So back to the event, WTH are these people thinking? If you're going after a specific copper for being a bad-egg, maybe I can see something in it, but if this is random shooting of any cop just cuz, then there's a lack of intellect involved. No reasonable individual would go around killing random local authority just cuz.

Would be incredibly convenient if this wasn't a coordinated attack. Given the entirety of the situation down there, I find it hard to believe two guys would be exchanging shots and then suddenly decide to not only stop shooting at each other, but to engage law enforcement instead of running like they usually do. Not an impossible scenario, but hard to believe if there were multiple shooters.

my local fox reported, 2 men started shooting at each other, a few cars responded, one suspect fired at officers, other party ini argument ran/on the loose/possibly barricaded in a nearby building.

possibly robbery gone bad.

Police are saying one suspect confirmed dead, there is a robot going in to ensure there are no explosives on him or in the area. They believe there are multiple people involved. No description of suspects.

Probably baited them in and then opened up when enough targets (LEO) where there.

Picture clearing:

A witness told WBRZ-TV that a man was dressed in black with his face covered was shooting indiscriminately when he walked out between a convenience store and car wash across from Hammond Air Plaza. Police closed the streets between the police department’s headquarters and Interstate 12.

Seems the local community is dropping off water to LEO's.

Simply AWESOME.
