Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, issued the following statement after three police officers were killed and three others wounded in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Sunday.

One of the three police officers has been identified as Montrell Jackson. The suspect has reportedly been identified as Gavin Long.

Today’s devastating assault on police officers in Baton Rouge is an assault on all of us. There is no justification for violence, for hate, for attacks on men and women who just put their lives on the line every day in service of our families and communities.

We must not turn our backs on each other. We must not be indifferent to each other. We must all stand together to reject violence and strengthen our communities. Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and families of the police officers who were killed and injured today.
