BATON ROUGE - People lined up today to give blood in East Baton Rouge Parish in support of deputies killed and wounded in a shooting last week in St. John Parish.

The blood drive began at 10 a.m. on St. Louis Street in Baton Rouge, and will continue until 4 p.m.

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office and United Blood Services organized the drive. Walk-ins are welcome, but people are encouraged to schedule a donation online at BloodHero.com, and use the sponsor code "EBRSO" to make sure the donation process goes smoothly.

News 2's Brittany Weiss will have more on response to the blood drive tonight at 5 and 6.
