Didn't see any videos on LL for this so figured I'd upload. For our international viewers, this police force is renown for abuse and corruption. Whether or not retaliation played a role is yet known.

"Two law enforcement officers died and two were injured in a series of apparently linked shootings early Thursday in LaPlace, Louisiana, authorities said.

The first shooting happened in a parking lot at a steel plant, Sheriff Mike Tregre said. The second happened when officers went to a nearby trailer park to investigate the first shooting and were ambushed by a man armed with what the sheriff described as an assault rifle, he said.In addition to the two wounded law enforcement officers, some of the five people taken into custody also suffered gunshot wounds, Tregre said.

Investigators were still sorting out what role those detained may have had in the shootings
