BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The Latest on the fatal shooting of a black man by Baton Rouge police officers (all times local): 5:30 p.m. A 20-year-old man accused of stealing guns from a pawn shop, in what authorities called a credible threat to harm police officers, is being held without bond in a Baton Rouge jail. Malik Bridgewater didn’t enter a plea to a firearms theft charge during his initial appearance in federal court on Friday. A federal magistrate said Bridgewater would be returned to state custody following the hearing. Police arrested Bridgewater and two other suspects following a burglary last weekend at a pawn shop where eight handguns were stolen. A court filing Thursday says Bridgewater told investigators his motivation for the burglary was to sell stolen items. But authorities said one of his accomplices told investigators they stole firearms to shoot police officers. The arrests came amid heightened tensions in Baton Rouge following a black man’s fatal shooting during a struggle with two white police officers.
