BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Authorities say a Louisiana police officer escorting a state child welfare case worker at a Baton Rouge apartment complex got into a struggle with a man, who was shot and killed.
Louisiana State Police spokesman Trooper Bryan Lee says the officer suffered minor injuries in the Monday night shooting.
Dozens of people gathered at the scene afterwards.
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. He said the man was not handcuffed at the time.
Calvin Coleman, who identified himself as the father of the man who was shot, said his son was black.
Officials did not identify or release any details about the officer and the suspect.
