Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards holds a 3 p .m. ET news conference regarding the police ambush in Baton Rouge.
BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (AP) — Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards says the shooter who killed three police officers in Baton Rouge "came in here from somewhere else to do harm to our community."
He says "this was "a diabolical attack on the very fabric of our society. This is not hyperbole. It is not an overstatement. There is nothing more important than law and order."
The governor says killing police officers "doesn't accomplish anything, it's not constructive. It's just pure unadulterated evil."
