The Baton Rouge shooter was armed to the teeth and “extremely accurate” in his ambush that killed three cops and wounded three more.
Gavin Long, 29, executed three cops in cold blood before being gunned down by a sharpshooting member of the Baton Rouge Police Department SWAT team that took him out from 100 yards away.
The chilling sequence of events began when Long, a former Marine from Kansas City, Mo., closed in on a car wash, seeking to sneak up on a police officer.
“He came in here from somewhere else to do harm to our community, and specifically to our law enforcement community,” Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said.
As Long snuck around, using “tactical” movements reflecting his training as a Marine, he ignored civilians, Col. Mike Edmonson, of the Louisiana State Police said.
