New information released in Baton Rouge fatal officer-involved shooting

Authorities say Toney was shot and killed in an altercation with an officer who had been escorting a state child welfare case worker Monday at a Baton Rouge apartment complex.

The Louisiana State Police Crime Lab and East Baton Rouge District Attorney's Office are now at the apartment complex investigating the incident, according to Lee.

Toney's death has been labeled a homicide, according to Clark's preliminary report.

A man who was fatally shot in a struggle with a Louisiana police officer has been identified.

The identities of the shooting victim and officer were not being released immediately, Lee told reporters at a news conference.

His probation was revoked in April 2016 after he attacked the child and the child's mother, according to WBRZ. The suspect was pronounced dead on the scene.

East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore III said a stun gun was deployed at least once during the struggle, but he couldn't specify how many times it was used or who fired it.

"During the course of that investigation, a struggle ensued with officers and the suspect", said Sr. Tpr.

Dozens of people, many shouting angrily at officers, gathered at the scene of the fatal police shooting.

Investigators have obtained body camera and surveillance footage, as well as witness statements and 911 calls which are all now being reviewed.

Mayor Sharon Weston Broome urged residents to "withhold judgment" on the shooting, asking that they instead let the Louisiana police complete its investigation. He said the man was not handcuffed at the time.

State police were called in to investigate the shooting, Lee said, and talked to witnesses. He didn't know whether the slain man was involved in the Department of Children and Family Service worker's case.

"As mayor-president of this city and parish, I am closely monitoring the Baton Rouge Police Department officer-involved shooting that took place tonight, Weston Broome said in a statement".

Police tape covered the entrance to the complex in northern Baton Rouge, and about 100 people gathered on other side, some yelling "Black lives matter", and "No justice, no peace". Calvin Coleman, who identified himself as Toney's father, said his son was black. Coleman said he had been standing behind the police tape for some time waiting for answers.

"It hurts", Coleman said.

Louisiana State Police Senior Trooper Bryan Lee confirmed Tuesday the man who was killed at a Baton Rouge apartment complex was 24-year-old Calvin Toney. They also worked to dispel a rumor that quickly spread on social media following the shooting.

Democratic state Rep. C. Denise Marcelle was among those officials who spoke out after Sterling's shooting. She said Monday night she was trying to calm people down at the scene of the latest shooting.

"As you see, the crowd is very anxious - emotions are running very high. I just wish there was some way it could have been avoided", she said.
