Suspect identified in slaying of Baton Rouge deputy

Melvin Hendricks 47

A Sheriff's Deputy from Louisiana killed late Saturday in the line of duty was identified as Sergent Shawn Anderson, a man who made national news just last March when he helped a woman deliver her baby in her vehicle on the side of a highway.

The suspect was also shot, and is being treated at local hospital, Lee said.

A large area near the AMC movie theater remained roped off in crime scene tape as police continued to investigate. Although authorities have not released many details about the shooting, according to a press release from the sheriff's office, a struggle ensued inside the business, and at some point, shots were fired. Lee cited the ongoing investigation as the reason why he could not provide more information. She declined to identify him.

"It's a tragic night for the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office", Hicks said.

Sheriff's deputies made "several attempts" to locate Wiley on Saturday before Anderson and the second deputy found him at Classic Cuts, the arrest report states. He pleaded guilty to aggravated battery charges in October 2005 and was sentenced to 13 months in jail. He was arrested and charged with incident behavior with a juvenile, and later pleaded guilty to inciting a felony. Wiley was detained pending trial at the request of prosecutors, Amundson said. He was sentenced to 13 months in prison. Wiley was released from the federal Bureau of Prisons on August 8, 2014, and completed his term of supervised release in 2016, Amundson said. The suspect, Brandon Wiley, 30, was an employee there.

Wiley is not licensed or registered with the Department of Health to perform commercial body art, according to the department's spokesman Bob Johannessen.




On Dec. 9, 2009, he was picked up on a traffic stop with a stolen gun in his auto.

Deputies were following up on that report when they found Wiley Saturday night at Classic Cuts salon on O'Neal Lane. The victim says she met Wiley about a month prior to the incident. She said Wiley had worked as a barber and stylist at her shop since the summer and had always been professional; showing up on time, being respectful to customers and wearing his uniform.

"It's bad someone had to loose a husband and a father so I pray for them all,"said Roach".

Roach said Wiley has a young daughter.

And, per the WAFB report, this is what Baton Rouge lost as a result...
