Man fatally shot by Baton Rouge police officer identified by State Police”

Officers with the Baton Rouge Police Department had been escorting a child welfare case worker to a local apartment complex, before a reported struggle between Toney and the officers, according to a spokesman for the Louisiana State Police, which is investigating the incident.

Troopers with Louisiana State Police are investigating a deadly shooting by a Baton Rouge police officer during a struggle Monday evening, as they worked fast to put to rest a social media rumor that was only making matters worse.

According to WBRZ in Baton Rouge authorities have identified the suspect shot and killed by Baton Rouge Police last night as 24-year old Calvin Toney.

Officials have not identified the officer involved in the shooting. The officer sustained minor injuries.

"During the course of that investigation, a struggle ensued with officers and the suspect", said Sr. Tpr.

East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore's office is asking the Louisiana Supreme Court to review the judge's decision.

Police tape covered the entrance to the complex in northern Baton Rouge, and about 100 people gathered on other side, some yelling "Black lives matter", and "No justice, no peace".

The identity of the person who was killed has not been released.

Sterling, 37, was killed by police in July 2016.

"We really are early on in this investigation, state police are here doing the job they always do", Moore said. "The suspect was shot and killed during the altercation", the statement says. The officers involved in the shooting were not indicted, and federal officials declined to bring criminal civil rights charges in May.

Broome, the city mayor, urged calm while investigators learned more about Monday night's shooting.

"Our message to the community is to trust us", Col. Kevin Reeves, superintendent of LSP, said.
