Family members, friends, police, and neighbors gathered in Denham Springs near Baton Rouge on Tuesday, to pay their respects to officers Montrell Jackson, Matthew Gerald, and East Baton Rouge Deputy Sheriff Brad Garafola after they were shot dead earlier this week. The officers were killed in a shootout with suspect Gavin Long, who reportedly opened fire on the police personnel with a rifle, injuring two other officers. The deaths have sparked nationwide protests over police brutality and racism.
