BATON ROUGE, La.  -- The man suspected of killing three law enforcement officers in Louisiana Sunday was a former Marine who listed a San Diego address on his marriage license application, according to a document obtained by City News Service.
The address was not listed on Gavin Long's Missouri Department of Health Application/Report of Marriage, but it did include the 92108 ZIP code, which covers Mission Valley. The document was filed July 13, 2009, in Jackson County, which includes Kansas City.
Long's wife, Aireyona Osha Hill, listed her age as 20 and her home as Kansas City. Both listed the marriage as their first. Long, who was 21 at the time, listed his highest level of education as two years of college.
According to the New York Times, Long was a former Marine sergeant and was stationed for a time at Camp Pendleton and MCAS Miramar. Her served as a data network specialist in the Marines from 2005 to 2010 and deployed to Iraq once during that time, the Times reports. 
He received multiple awards, including the Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, the Iraq Campaign Medal and the National Defense Service Medal. 
After the Marines, he attended the University of Alabama for one semester, in the spring of 2012, according to university spokesman Chris Bryant. University police had no interaction with Long during that time, Bryant said.
Oren Segal, director of the Center on Extremism for the Anti-Defamation League, said there was no information linking Long, who was black, to any known extremist group or movement, but the ADL and others were investigating Long's possible use of aliases.
Long turned 29 Sunday. He was killed during a shootout with police.
