On Sunday morning, multiple suspects opened fire on police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. At least three officers were killed, and at least two more were injured in the gunfight.

The shootings come less than two weeks after Alton Sterling was shot and killed on camera by police, and just 10 days after snipers attacked police officers in Dallas, Texas.

In the wake of yet another mass shooting, celebrities, athletes, musicians and politicians took to social media to mourn lives lost and call for an end to violence.

















Baton Rouge. Rest In Peace.
