Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie says 37-year-old Alton Sterling was armed when he was shot by police officers outside a convenience store, but they still have questions on how this tragedy occurred. Dabadie offered the media the information about the shooting they have at this time. He says someone called 911 saying that a black man selling CDs threatened them with a gun.
