Man in struggle with BR officer shot, killed at apartment complex

A man shot dead by a Baton Rouge police officer during a struggle at an apartment complex has been identified as 23-year-old Calvin Toney, Louisiana State Police Master Trooper Bryan Lee said on Tuesday morning.

State Police said the trouble started at the Palms Apartments on McClelland Drive just after 6 p.m. when officers with the Baton Rouge Police Department were asked to escort a Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) case worker to the complex.

"Officials did not identify or release any details about the officer and the man he shot Monday night".

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.

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

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.

Authorities would not say if investigators recovered any weapons at the scene. Two cellphone videos of the shooting quickly spread on social media, sparking nightly protests in Louisiana's capital city.

State police were called in to investigate the shooting, Lee said, and talked to witnesses.

Authorities said officer had a minor injury but did not elaborate.

Democratic state Rep. C. Denise Marcelle was among those officials who spoke out after Sterling's shooting. "And, I've been trying to keep them as calm as possible", Marcelle said.

"Our message to the community is to trust us", Col. Kevin Reeves, superintendent of LSP, said. Video was not released Monday.

State District Court Judge Richard Anderson overturned Wilbert Jones' conviction on October 31, saying the case against him was "weak, at best".
