BATON ROUGE, La. — Police say a man has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a Louisiana man.

Baton Rouge police said in a statement that 22-year-old Kendrick Davis was arrested Sunday and booked on several offenses, including second-degree murder in the death of 22-year-old Craig Thomas. Police told The Advocate that Thomas was found dead on the ground next to his vehicle in a parking lot in September.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, police were patrolling an area in search of Davis and saw a man matching his description.

Davis started running when contacted by police and, after a brief chase, was placed in handcuffs. Police found that Davis was carrying marijuana and a semi-automatic pistol, which was confirmed as stolen.

It’s unclear if Davis has a lawyer.
