BATON ROUGE - A city police car was damaged after it was set on fire overnight.

The unit was parked at a repair shop near the corner of Tom Drive at Airline when it was set ablaze around 2 a.m. Friday. Hours later, police said a Molotov cocktail was set off, causing the vehicle to burn up.

The fire was about two miles from the Triple S store where Alton Sterling was shot and killed by police Tuesday and sparked week-long protests in Baton Rouge and other cities.
