BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- At least several on-duty law enforcement officers were shot in Baton Rouge on Sunday morning, authorities said. The extent of their injuries was not immediately known. The shooting — which happened just before 9 a.m., less than 1 mile from police headquarters — comes amid spiraling tensions across the city — and the country — between the black community and police. The races of the suspect or suspects and the officers were not immediately known. Baton Rouge Police Sgt. Don Coppola told The Associated Press that he did not know the extent of the injuries or give the precise number of officers injured.
