BATON ROUGE- Baton Rouge Police have arrested a man they say shot a football coach three years ago to the day.

According to jail records, Jamarcus Goodman is linked by DNA evidence to the shooting that happened off Bennington Avenue on Nov. 16, 2014. Goodman is accused of killing former West St. John coach Juan Joseph.

According to the affidavit, the suspect was the passenger in a vehicle in a parking lot on Bennington Drive. The shooter exited the vehicle and fired his weapon, striking Joseph. After the shooting, the suspect got back into the passenger's side of the vehicle and left the area.

Previously, police said that Joseph had gotten into an argument with two cousins, Kendrick and Lamark Cloud. Kendrick was originally identified as the shooter, but the charges were dropped against him after the District Attorney's office says an intoxicated witness misidentified him as the shooter.

Goodman has been in Texas serving time on a robbery charge. For the death of Joseph, Goodman is being charged with second-degree murder.
