Gavin Long

As Baton Rouge police officers went about their normal routines on Sunday morning, they didn't know that a trained killer was stalking them.

Several law enforcement agencies described Gavin Long's movements in chilling detail during a press conference on Monday.

Long, who turned 29 that day, arrived in Baton Rouge six days earlier. While his activities in the days prior to the shootings are unknown, police believe he tailed officers to familiarize himself with their hangouts.

Just before 9 a.m. Sunday, Long spotted a police car parked outside a convenience store.

Long, dressed head-to-toe in black, carried a IWR Tavor SAR 5.56 rifle (for deadly accuracy at close range) and a 9mm pistol. A M4 assault rifle was staged in his car.

IWR Tavor SAR rifle

He parked near the convenience store and approached the police vehicle with his weapon aimed and ready. But the vehicle was empty.

While he stalked the police, Long ignored shoppers who called 911 to report "a dude with a rifle".

An officer was vacuuming his car at a gas station at the other end of the plaza.

Long parked his rented Chevrolet Malibu behind a fitness center and approached the gas station on foot.

But by the time he got to the station the officer was gone.

Long sprinted across the plaza back toward the convenience store.

Long ran along the side of the convenience store and encountered 2 police officers: Montrell Jackson, 32, and 41-year-old Matthew Gerald.

Jackson was the first to die. Gerald was wounded in the attack.

Another officer who was with them -- East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputy Brad Garafola, 45, took cover behind a dumpster.

As Long fled around the side of the building, Garafola left his cover and tried to get to the wounded officer.

But Long rounded the corner again and engaged Garafola in a firefight.

Garafola was shot and killed in a hail of bullets.

“My deputy went down fighting. He returned fire to the very end,” East Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said.

Long turned his attention back to Gerald, who was trying to crawl away, and shot him twice more, killing him.

Now 3 police officers lay dead.

Long hopped a wall and sprinted back toward the fitness center where he left his car.

He spotted an officer sitting in his patrol unit. The officer was running the plate on Long's rental car.

Long fired through the front windshield, hitting the officer multiple times. That officer is listed in critical condition at a local hospital.

Long shot and wounded two more officers before a SWAT team sharpshooter killed him.

Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie Jr. said the kill shot was fired over the length of football field, between 2 structures.

It was a hell of a shot,” Dabadie said.

    1.) Sooo there is video of Kanye talking to Taylor Swift about the song lyrics where he referenced her.

    2.) The Puerto Rican princess is pregnant? Or nah? Her gut is definitely enlarged.

    3.) I just saw the clip of Tammy and Waka. I know that people can change, blah, blah, blah. But he sounds like a typical manipulative cheater, to ME.

  • brooklyn23

    Sighs. Its life unfortunately. I bet the cops that got killed probably were decent and not the ones that needed a bullet in them. But.... I will say its time to clap back. Guys like this who are about action and not just talking the talk are 1 man armies. People need to come together, and combat the police. Maybe the same way they keep killing civilians like nothing (mostly black skinned civilians) maybe it should be turned on them. Because these marches/rallies/riots arent working. How long has it been since that Rodney King incident? Now it escalated to killing and seems like a daily basis

  • brooklyn23

    Imagine having groups kill cops on what seemed like a daily basis. These people with authority who abuse it their authority might think twice before they wanna act like they can pull out a gun and fire away. Sometimes fire with fire I suppose.

    Kim got tired of her ol' man gettin dragged to hell so she exposed the swift hoe..Jose say she is... She didn't lie last time sooo... Who's is it is my question? Tammy will not walk away until she is left with suttin she can't get rid of ?

    Re Kim- this just confirms that they are some plotting scheming individuals. They waited alllllllll of this time. Then BAM! And Taylor is out here looking crazy 8 months later.

    I guess this means the 9mm and "IWR Tavor SAR 5.56 rifle" will be under attack at the next "MOAR GUN KONTROLLL!!!!!" debate.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Did society finish addressing the courthouse shooting the white man did? I don't believe what the media keeps putting out. Black veterans that are now shooting and killing cops and injuring people. How come the "people" only get injured but the cops die ?? This seems like the "see, they're violent, they're dangerous, this is why we shoot to kill" but I'm??

  • Fendi

    Some of these Black cops are nastier to Black men and women than white ones are. Sometimes, Black cops feel they have something to prove to their white co-workers, so they're just as bad if not worse.

  • Ruby shine

    Wow, chills! so many feelings about this, it's scary & dangerous but at the same time a message is being sent out to the police as well. If they keep on murdering blacks , there are some out there now ready to go to war. I just hate that innocent lives are being lost due to the actions of some evil ones. I hate all these homicides!

    Baltimore Police Lieutenant Brian Rice Acquitted On ALL Charges In Freddie Gray’s Murder

    Baltimore police lieutenant Brian Rice was cleared of ALL charges in Freddie Gray’s murder according to NY Post:

    Lt. Brian Rice was found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment in a bench trial before Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams.

    Prosecutors had blamed Rice for Gray’s death because he did not put a seat belt on the prisoner when Gray was loaded into the back of a police van. Gray, 25, died from spinal cord injuries he suffered on his ride in custody.

    Rice, 42, is the fourth officer to go on trial, with the previous three winning two full acquittals and one mistrial.

    Two more cops go on trial, this month and in October, respectively. Gray’s death led to rioting that caused millions of dollars in damage and hundreds of arrests.

    It could help that mixed couple who had their 3rd set of twins. Girl is 20 yrs old. Read it on yahoo. Nothing but mean comments. Like I said jews be starting young and have a lot of kids too, and are on govt assistance as well. But its ok when they do it. Everyone else does it, its tax payer money this and that, oh another one. Life. We're just passing through. People need to realize that and stop bullshitting. Stop the violence, stop the minding business that doesnt concern you etc. Live and let live. This would be a better place. Not even ideal, but definitely better than what it is.

    That movie is almost 25 years old and still relevant as ever today. But Black people are the problem?!. Lol. Nah.

  • Fendi

    The cops are shooting at each other and killing each other and blaming it on civilians - namely Black civilians. That is per witness accounts at these mass shootings. It happened in Dallas just like it happened at Pulse. The police killed the majority of the victims at Pulse Nightclub, not that so-called "terrorist."

    Hey sis. I'm not sure if you're the same Da Realest from HSK. If so, *hugs*. If not, welcome. Please know that the threads on Black blogs will be troll heavy, considering the racial climate and dialogue revolving around all of these racial incidents. If someone who doesn't know you is coming at you hard, take it with a grain of salt. You did the right thing to block and move.

    You're wide awake. If TPTB can't feminize the Black man, they're going to find another way to demonize him. They're preying heavily upon the emotions of what they perceive are fragile Black males. As their women, be it mothers, sisters, wives, gfs or just friends, we need to have their backs. As much as I want to thumb my nose at some of them for not supporting us in our times of need, I honestly don't feel like now is the time. And should we have those discussions, they need to be amongst US, in private.

    TPTB are going to target the strongest, most virile, most handsome, most educated, most intelligent and most capable, because they really want to wipe out the Black race. We can't allow that. If you are who I think you are, I know you're a good sista who rides with her people. Keep up the good work and don't let another mf suggest you are anything less than golden. ??

    Off topic..but on topic.

    Cleveland (CNN)Donald Trump said Monday he believes the Black Lives Matter movement has in some cases helped instigate the recent killings of police officers, and suggested he might direct his future attorney general to investigate the civil rights activist group.

    "Certainly, in certain instances they are," Trump told Fox News host Bill O'Reilly when he asked whether the group has been "a fuse-lighter in the assassinations of these police officers."
    ##########
    In other words, Lorretta out and Telly Tubby from NJ. Christie in.

    But he falied to mention police chiefs getting rid of racist murderers.

    I dont know if i will have time to post later on so here goes...last night Melania Trump lived up to the epitome of the classic pretty girl; she's a beauty with no brains.

    The republicans all defended her last night trying to blame the speech writer. But there is a clip of Melania saying that she wrote the speech herself with little help. The first thing you do with this kind of speech is research what previous people said, which is fine, but you dont copy it. She can't claim ignorance on this. They would be ready to stone Mrs. Obama if this happened to her.

    Representative Steve King, Republican of Iowa, questioned the historical contributions of nonwhite “subgroups” during an appearance on MSNBC on Monday, igniting swift backlash online.

    Mr. King spoke during a panel discussion, led by the MSNBC host Chris Hayes, about the racial makeup of the Republican Party on the first day of the party’s convention.

    so he said nonwhites have never contributed anything to western civilization... meanwhile, all that unpaid labor is what made the westernized world what it is today... bish bye. ugh, this world we live in though.

    The thing about David Clark is, I heard him on Fox News once (I mentioned it in here LAST YEAR - because of some cop-on-black crime that was committed at a swimming pool last summer) and I ain't like (or listened to) him ever since. He showed me who he was ONCE.....that's all I needed to see/know. So anytime his name is mentioned, I already know it ain't about shit.

    She did. If I'm correct, she may have single handedly ended her husband's campaign last night

    They should fire their speechwriter. That's just embarrassing.

    Better to blame the speechwriter and fire him/her, than to deny the obvious. Then again, if this helps contribute tot the downfall of Donald Trump, thats a good thing. Let them keep digging the hole deeper.

    I told my friend months ago that Hillary and the Donald are in cahoots together. He dont want to win because he's secretly a Democrat. His children conveniently didn't register as Republicans in time to vote for him during the primaries in NY.

    I think this speech is another stunt in their campaign to laugh at the obvious dumb supporters who cant see through all of his smoke and mirrors. The OG Republicans are on to him and that is why they are not supporting him. When he loses, Donald is gonna be so much richer which was basically his whole plan.
