Baton Rouge suspect identified as Gavin Eugene Long
The now-dead suspect allegedly attacked police on his 29th birthday.
The suspect has been identified as a black male named Gavin Eugene Long of Kansas City, Missouri, sources tell CBS News. He was born on July 17, 1987.
One suspect was killed and two others might still be at large, Casey Rayborn Hicks, a spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office, previously said. However, Louisiana state police said Sunday afternoon there is “no active shooter” in Baton Rouge.
The Baton Rouge Advocate reported that two other men were picked up across the Mississippi River in Addis and were being questioned by police as “persons of interest.”
