Gunman accused of killing police once attended Clark Atlanta

Police search Kansas City, MO home possibly connected to Baton Rouge shooting suspect Gavin Long

ATLANTA (AP) — Clark Atlanta University officials say Baton Rouge gunman Gavin Eugene Long was briefly enrolled at the Atlanta university during the 2012-13 academic year.

Clark Atlanta said in a statement Monday morning that the university "categorically denounces this heinous act."

Long, a former Marine from Kansas City, Missouri, turned 29 on Sunday, the same day he opened fire, killing three law enforcement officers and wounding three others. Long was killed at the scene.

The shooting added to the tensions across the country between the black community and police.

University of Alabama spokesman Chris Bryant said Long also attended the University of Alabama for one semester, in the spring of 2012.
