The body of the gunman who killed three law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge has been released to his family.

Shane Evans of the East Baton Rouge Parish coroner's office says Gavin Long's body was claimed by his mother, Corine Woodley, and released Monday morning to a Covington funeral home.

Evans said an Arkansas funeral home is handling arrangements for Long's family, but the body had to be released to a funeral service licensed in Louisiana.

The coroner's office performed an autopsy on Long's body last week.

A SWAT officer gunned down Long, a 29-year-old from Kansas City, Missouri, after he killed three officers and wounded three others during a shootout outside a convenience store on July 17.

The last funeral for the three officers killed in the ambush was held Monday.
