BATON ROUGE - Memorials have been set up for an EBRSO deputy who was killed during Sunday's tragic ambush shooting.

The sheriff's office is displaying a unit in front of headquarters and other reminders are placed around the inside lobby.

The memorials are in place to honor Deputy Brad Garafola, who died at the scene of a shooting on Airline Highway on Sunday. He was 45 years old and had served on the EBRSO force for 24 years. His shifted had ended at 8 a.m. and he was working extra duty when shots rang out on what seemed to be an ordinary Sunday morning in Baton Rouge. He was a father of four.

We'll have updates regarding other memorials, vigils and funeral arrangements as soon as they become available.

Funeral arrangements for Deputy Garafola were announced on Wednesday morning. That information is available by clicking here.
