Curfews are in place in East Baton Rouge, Livingston and Ascension until conditions improve in those parishes. State Police Col. Mike Edmonson says the curfews are in place to keep everyone safe. He says law enforcement has also started going door-to-door in flooded areas looking for storm victims.

The three law enforcement officers killed in Sunday’s ambush attack in Baton Rouge are being remembered today as heroes. Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie says Office Matthew Gerald was a devoted husband and father of two and joined the Baton Rouge Police Department in March. Dabadie says Gerald also served in the Marine Corp, the Army, and served three tours in Iraq.

The Baton Rouge police shooting came two days after the funeral of Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old black man fatally shot during a confrontation with two white police officers. The shooting of Sterling set off a series of protests seeking justice. Governor John Bel Edwards says Baton Rouge is hurting, but more violence is not the answer.

|The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's office has released a picture of the vehicle that was involved in last weekend's fatal shooting of a seven-year-old boy in Baton Rouge. Sheriff Sid Gautreaux says surveillance video from a nearby residence captured a light-colored, four-door sedan in the area when a shot was fired into another vehicle, killing Terrez Coleman.|
