Kenneth Gleason, 23, will be booked on two counts of first-degree murder in the slayings of Bruce Cofield, 59, on September 12, and Donald Smart, 49, on Thursday.

It's "extremely unusual" to find DNA on shell casings, Moore said, adding that it's "a credit" to the collaborative effort among law enforcement in the case.

A 23-year-old white man has been arrested and will be charged with murder in the fatal shootings of two black men in attacks that police in the USA state of Louisiana said may have been racially motivated.

The Advocate will stream the news conference when it begins.

Police arrested Gleason over the weekend on drug charges, but he was bailed out of jail late on Sunday even though authorities considered him a "person of interest" in the shooting of a homeless man and a dishwasher who was killed while walking to work.

The slayings of the two pedestrians, one gunned down about 11 p.m. on September 12 and the other about the same time on Thursday, were connected through ballistics, but appear to be random attacks, said Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sgt. L'Jean McKneely.

According to WBRZ-TV, Kenneth Gleason will face murder charges for the deaths of two black men inside the Baton Rouge city limits and a third attack in East Baton Rouge Parish.

Another department spokesman has said there was a "strong possibility" that the shootings were racially motivated, but he would not elaborate on why police thought that.

23-year-old Kenneth Gleason is being investigated for the two slayings on Florida Boulevard and Alaska Street that occurred last week. Monday, Gleason was arrested a second time after a clerk at a Books-A-Million said he left the store without paying for a book. He posted a $500 bond and was out of prison early Tuesday morning.

The two shootings happened last week on Florida Blvd. near North Acadian and Alaska Street in Old South Baton Rouge.

Shell casings from the two killings matched and Gleason's vehicle fit the description police were searching for, McKneely said.
