(SOUNDBITE) (English) L’JEAN MCKNEELY, BATON ROUGE POLICE SPOKESMAN, SAYING:“I don’t want to give specific numbers right now. We have three to four that were transported to the hospital and we believe that they are deceased. So we are respecting the family until all their families have been notified before we give a specific number out.”“We’re not one hundred percent sure, that’s why we’re not putting it out. We do believe there’s more than one suspect though. That’s why we’re trying to get this message out as quickly as possible, asking the community to help us. We do believe there is more than one suspect.”“We don’t have any information right now. We’re still working the scene. So it’s an ongoing scene, we don’t have any specific detail as to what transpired. We do know there’s a scene over here at the B-Quik station, so we’re working that scene. There’s a suspect that’s down right now. We’re checking him out. We’re going to make sure there aren’t any explosives around. So we’re trying to secure the scene before we give any detailed information.”
