BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU football coach Les Miles has been visiting with law enforcement in Baton Rouge after an ambush by a lone gunman took the lives of three officers Sunday and wounded three others.

Miles had unannounced, private meetings Tuesday with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, which lost a deputy in the fatal shootings, and Baton Rouge Police, which lost two officers.

LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette confirmed the visits with authorities after the coach was seen entering police headquarters, where he spent more than an hour, by The Associated Press.

Bonnette says Miles only wanted to express his support and discuss his appreciation for the courage police show in putting their lives on the line to protect their communities.
