Man shot dead by Baton Rouge police officer: State Police

State Police are investigating after Baton Rouge police fatally shot a man during a struggle at an apartment complex Monday evening.

Louisiana State Police spokesman Trooper Bryan Lee says the officer suffered minor injuries in the Monday night shooting.

Cellphone video showed Sterling pinned to the ground by the white officers before he was shot, but police said he was reaching for a gun.

As of Tuesday morning, officials were also not releasing the name of the officer who used deadly force. A large crowd gathered near the shooting scene, according to CNN affiliate WBRZ.

East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar C. Moore, III told reporters the victim in Monday night's officer-involved shooting was not handcuffed at the time he was shot.

Occasionally, the mood became angry toward police as people changed "hands up, don't shoot!" and "black lives matter!"

According to the the Washington Post's database tracking fatal police shootings in the U.S., Toney is at least the 196th known black person shot and killed by law enforcement in 2017. The officer is on paid administrative leave, as is standard in officer-involved shootings.

Investigators said the officer was wearing a body camera at the time of the incident, and the footage will be reviewed by state police. "I certainly believe that they will do a very thorough investigation".

Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome urged residents to "withhold judgment" on the shooting, asking that they instead let the Louisiana police complete its investigation.

Among the 2016 shootings was Alton Sterling, the 37-year-old black man killed by police outside a Baton Rouge mini-market where he was selling homemade CDs.

"Our message to the community is to trust us", Col. Kevin Reeves, superintendent of LSP, said.
