Baton Rouge, La — Baton Rouge Police detectives have made an arrest in a 2004 cold case murder.
Brian Antonio Spears, 34, of Baker, has been arrested and charged with First-Degree Murder in connection with the shooting death of Louis Davis, 21.
The shooting occurred on August 4, 2004 in the 6300 block of Airline Highway. Davis was a passenger in a car that was fired upon by another passing vehicle. The driver of the car he was riding in was not hit, but Davis was struck and later died of his wound.
A witness recently came forward in the case with credible information that Spears was the shooter. He will be booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison today.
