Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — A man wanted for murder is now behind bars after a two day search by local, state and federal authorities.
Shreveport Police arrested Kevin Joseph Lino, 27, of Lowell, Massachusetts, just after 6:00 p.m. Saturday evening along a stretch of Mansfield Road between Valley View Drive and Kingston Road. Lino had been a fugitive during the nearly two day man hunt in connection with his alleged participation of a homeless man in Missoula, Montana back in July. Lino, who is said to have ties in the Shreveport area, was able to evade authorities on at least two previous occasions while in the area.
Authorities first tracked Lino at Clyde Fant Parkway along the Red River on Friday evening and a second time Friday night after a car was reported stolen from a parking lot in Shreve City.
Acting on information received from confidential sources, authorities were able to track Lino to a wooded area near a set of railroad tracks below the Mansfield Road viaduct. Lino was eventually captured and taken into custody by Shreveport Police without incident. Police then booked Lino into Shreveport City Jail as a fugitive.
