U. S. Marshals arrest BR murder suspect
BATON ROUGE - A U. S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested a Baton Rouge man this week in connection with a deadly shooting in April.
Task force agents arrested Christopher Jackson, 22, Thursday according to Cpl. L'Jean McKneely with the Baton Rouge Police Department.
Police said Jackson shot and killed Travis Mitchell, 25, two months ago. Investigators said Mitchell and a woman were both shot in the 1400 block of North 35th just before midnight on April 2. Mitchell died at the scene, and the woman was treated at Baton Rouge General Mid-City.
McKneely said detectives still weren't clear on the motive behind the shooting.
Officers booked Jackson into the East Baton Rouge Parish jail on first degree murder charges.
