Dig Baton Rouge

Man who killed 3 BR law enforcement officers didn’t have PTSD, report says

Gavin Long, a former Marine who killed three members of Baton Rouge law enforcement in July, told doctors he had post-traumatic stress disorder because he watched violent videos, but the Associated Press reports that according to records from the Veterans Health Administration, Long was not suffering from PTSD, but “adjustment disorder with depressed mood.” Doctors at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Kansas City, Missouri, diagnosed him with the condition in 2011.

Long served from 2005 to 2010, but never saw combat in Iraq, where he spent seven months in 2008, according to The Associated Press.
