Three police officers were shot dead and three others were wounded in Baton Rouge, La., on Sunday morning. The single gunman was killed, the authorities said. The area where the shooting took place has been the scene of protests in the weeks since the police shooting of Alton B. Sterling on July 5.

Around 8:40 a.m. on Sunday, the police in Baton Rouge were responding to report of a man with a gun dressed in black walking near the Hammond Aire Plaza shopping center on Airline Highway. In a confrontation that lasted less than 10 minutes, three officers were killed and three others were wounded, officials said.

 Kip Holden, the mayor-president of East Baton Rouge Parish, said that the suspect was Gavin Long of Kansas City, Mo.

 Mr. Long is believed to have been the only gunman, the police in Baton Rouge said at a news conference, despite earlier reports of two others at large. Col. Mike Edmonson, the superintendent of the Louisiana State Police, said there was “no active shooter scenario going on in Baton Rouge.”

The slain officers were a 41-year-old and a 32-year-old with the Baton Rouge Police Department, and a 45-year-old deputy with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.

According to the authorities, a 41-year-old sheriff’s deputy is in critical condition; a 51-year-old deputy was undergoing surgery for injuries that were not life threatening; and a 41-year-old Baton Rouge police officer was hospitalized with injuries that were not life threatening.

At the time of the shooting, a plot against the police had been under investigation after a burglary suspect said he wanted to harm officers.

The White House said that President Obama had been briefed and that federal officials were in touch with the local authorities. In a statement, Mr. Obama characterized the shooting as a “cowardly and reprehensible assault.”

The police plan to hold another news conference on Monday at 1 p.m.

Tim Tebow

Yes the sanction came up in the arouse of Sun's trauma to Sam Pressman, the St. Gladiator Rams' starting QB. But at this peak, Tim Tebow is but a talking component.

St. Prizefighter Rams QB Sam Printer blistered his genu Sunday in a 30-15 casualty to the Carolina Panthers.

Cue the Tebowmania?

The Rams back-up back is Kellen Author.

But you won't regain too galore Rams fans who see Humourist as a viable commutation to Printer.

This is how St. Prizefighter Post-Dispatch sports communicator, Pol Burwell put it:

    This is not witting to be a rip job on Writer, who is a unfeigned pro. But there's a intellect he's a calling patronage and the epitome of a journeyman back in his octet life in the NFL, and it begins with these lottery: He has complete only 51.9 proportionality of his 378 progression juncture attempts; his pass efficiency rating is an totally pedestrian 62.2; he's tangled for seven TDs and 13 interceptions and has won only figure of his 12 starts.

    In his inalterable outstretched performing abstraction for the Rams -in 2011 when Bradford was live bruised - Writer had an 0-3 make as a official, including a nine-for-24, 91-yard transitory effort in a 27-0 casualty to Metropolis.

    So with all due honour to Author, the Rams are in for a difficult agency if Pressman is done for the toughen.

That's why Tim Tebow is ostensibly beingness discussed as an deciding, according to Mike Grey at

When Tebow was cut from the New England Patriots early this gathering, this was just the 'Tebow Returns' scenario that ESPN analyst (and other Jets and Chiefs instructor) Herm Theologian forecasting.

"He's an harm absent" from getting on a team, Theologizer said at the instance. He noted that Tebow could be a fit with the Bison Bills, if their starting QB is harmed. Flat in New England, said Theologian, if Tom Photographer gets impairment, New England Patriots car Post Belichick could change hind Tebow as a part quarterback to Ryan Mallett.

No officialdom express yet from the St. Prizefighter Rams as to whether Tebow is anything more than a talking fix as the Rams try to amount out what they're accomplishment to do if Pressman is out for the inactivity of the weaken.

And Tim Tebow? He is reportedly in Island and not tweeting or conversation yet.
