Baton Rouge shooting: Reporter describes scene

A journalist from the ABC network describes the scene after three police officers were shot dead in the US city of Baton Rouge.

Reports say a lone gunman opened fire with an assault rifle.

It follows the recent killing of a black man by police in the city. That, and a police shooting in Minnesota, led to protests across the US.
