The three police officers shot dead in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, were deliberately "targeted and assassinated" by a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who appeared to go out of his way to spare civilians during his assault, authorities said.The ambush came a week and a half after another former U.S. serviceman espousing militant black nationalist views cut down five Dallas officers in a sniper attack that shattered an otherwise peaceful protest denouncing the fatal police shootings of two black men days earlier, one of them in Baton Rouge.Police have declined to say what role race might have played in Sunday's rampage, which killed two white officers and one black officer. Edmonson said Long had been in the Baton Rouge area for several days before the shooting and, while he acted alone in the ambush itself, police have not ruled out the possibility he might have had help planning the attack.
