    A suspect remains at large in an alleged plot to kill officers at protests after the fatal police shooting of Alton Sterling at a Louisiana store, authorities said Tuesday.

    Col. Mike Edmonson, superintendent of the Louisiana State Police, said at a news conference that the plot, had it been carried out, would have caused "substantial harm to police in the Baton Rouge area."

    Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie Jr. said the plot was uncovered after a robbery Saturday shortly after midnight at a pawn shop where at least eight firearms were stolen, NBC News reported. All were handguns, and all but two of them have been recovered, police said.

    Four people were involved in the plot, Dabadie said — one of them just 13 years old. Three have been arrested, but the fourth — whose identity isn't known — remains at large, he said.
