Read on to find out the full story.
Three U.S. police officers have been shot dead and 7 injured in the Baton Rouge shooting.
The East Baton Rouge sheriff says that one attacker is dead and two others just got lucky and saved themselves.
The shooting took place around 10 AM (ET).
Earlier this month, 7 Dallas police officers were killed on July 7. Since then, the days have been emotionally charged.
A man who lives near the shopping center said:
"I heard probably 10 to 12 gunshots go off," he said in a telephone interview. "We heard a bunch of sirens and choppers and everything since then."
"There is still an active scene. They are investigating. Right now we are trying to get our arms around everything," he said.
"Everything is moving fast," said Kip Holden, the mayor-president of East Baton Rouge Parish.
