LSU lit up their football stadium with blue lights to honor a fallen police officer.

The stadium was lit up with blue lights Monday night to honor the Baton Rouge police officer who was killed Sunday morning while in the line of duty.

Two police officers were shot when they approached a man to question him about a previous homicide.

One officer was killed while on the scene and another wounded in the shooting. The officer who was injured was in critical condition but is now talking and breathing on his own.

Our thoughts are with the families of the officers and the entire Baton Rouge Police Department.

As for the man who shot the officers, he was arrested after a standoff with police and could be facing the death penalty.
