BATON ROUGE - The mother of Alton Sterling's son says she is heartbroken for the Baton Rouge officers who were gunned down and their families and is calling for peace.

In a statement issued Sunday evening Quinyetta McMillon says she is disgusted by the despicable act of violence that resulted in the officers' deaths and that all she and her son Cameron want is peace.

Thirty-seven-year-old Sterling, a black man, was killed by white officers on July 5 after a scuffle at a convenience store. The killing was captured on widely circulated cellphone video.
