The U.S. Attorney's Office in Baton Rouge says federal officials will be in town Thursday to make what is being billed as a significant announcement. It will focus on the city's battle against violent crime.

Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome recently requested assistance from State Police in tackling the problem. The rate of murders and shootings has spiked in recent weeks.
