A man who has been identified as Gavin Eugene Long from Kansas City sent three policemen to their grave and meted out injuries to three others with a gunshot. Reports reveal that Eugene Long shot the six persons at Baton Rouge the day he had his birthday.
CBS News gathered that Long was a one-time Marine who was discharged honourably after he had achieved the rank of Sergeant. He later became a Self-styled “Alpha-preneur” and Life Coach under the name of Cosmo Setepenra.
At about 8:29am on Sunday morning, someone alerted the Police and reported that there was a man in a complete black attire, had his face covered with a mask and armed with a long gun along the street.
