Fugitive task force catches murder suspect
BATON ROUGE - A fugitive task force arrested an East Baton Rouge man wanted in connection with a deadly shooting last month in the city-parish.
U. S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force members located 22-year-old Aljerard Warner at a home on East Black Oak Drive Monday morning in Baton Rouge.
