Authorities said two East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputies entered the Classic Cuts business at 16040 Hatteras Ave. around 11 p.m.in reference to a rape investigation.

"We are focused on working with the family, praying for the family and making sure our deputies have the help and support they need", sheriff's spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks told the affiliate.

Sri Lanka's openers started their second innings positively and made 54 without loss in the 13 overs they faced. Off spinner Hasan finished with 3-90, and Mustafizur Rahman, Subashis Roy and Shakib taking two wickets each.

For the second time in less than a year, branches of Baton Rouge law enforcement gathered to announce the death of one of their own. While investigators have not released any details about what happened next, shots were fired and both Anderson and the suspect were hurt. He also delivered a baby on the side of the road past year.

State Police will handle the investigation going forward. Anderson succumbed to his injuries at Ochsner Medical Center.

"Our hearts and prayers are with the family and friends of the fallen deputy and all the courageous men and women in law enforcement who risk their own safety every single day to protect the communities they serve", said Corey Amundson, acting US attorney.
