Tigers stadium was lit blue on Monday night in honor of three fallen Baton Rouge police officers.
Three law enforcement officers were shot and killed on Sunday in Baton Rouge, less than two weeks after the death of Alton Sterling. Coach Les Miles was scheduled to make his annual appearance on ESPN’s “Car Wash,” on Monday, but canceled the trip because of the tragic events.
“My heart hurts for Baton Rouge and what’s happened in our community over the past couple of weeks,” he said in a statement. “My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those officers who lost their lives or were injured today in what was a senseless act. I continue to pray for peace, compassion and civility as our city mourns during this extremely sad time for Baton Rouge.”
