FULL COVERAGE: Louisiana honors fallen Baton Rouge officers.

On July 17, Baton Rouge police officers Matthew Gerald and Montrell Jackson, along with East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputy Brad Garafola were gunned down by Gavin Long, who authorities say intentionally targeted law officers for assassination.

Their deaths have left the Baton Rouge community battling enormous pain, while calling for unity.

The officers were shot after days of protests in Baton Rouge over police killing Alton Sterling outside a Baton Rouge convenience store as he was pinned to the ground, and after police killed Philando Castile in Minnesota.

Before the officers were killed here in Baton Rouge, Dallas police came under attack by a lone gunman.

Law enforcement from all over the state is expected to be in attendance. New Orleans Police Department Supt. Michael Harrison said he plans to be among them. 

The memorial service will stream live on fox8live.com.
