BATON ROUGE - The coroner for Baton Rouge says that each of the three officers that were killed in Sunday morning's shooting died of multiple gunshot wounds.

East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner Beau Clark said that the autopsies will began around 8 a.m., and the results were released around 5:30 p.m. on Monday. The three officers slain were East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office Deputy Brad Garafola, BRPD officer Matthew Gerald and BRPD officer Montrell Jackson. Clark says an autopsy on the deceased suspect, Gavin Long, is planned for Tuesday.
In the Sunday attack, Long, a former Marine dressed in black and carrying extra ammunition shot and killed three Baton Rouge law enforcement officers, less than two weeks after a black man was fatally shot by police there in a confrontation that sparked nightly protests that reverberated nationwide.
