Suspect in fatal deputy shooting identified

BATON ROUGE - The man suspected of killing an East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Deputy has been identified as 30-year-old Brandon Wiley.

Wiley, who was also shot in the incident that left Sergeant Shawn T. Anderson dead, is said to be in critical condition at a Baton Rouge-area hospital.

He was booked remotely on a rape charge. The incident involving that charge is apparently the reason that deputies were at the Classic Cuts hair salon Saturday night.

According to WBRZ-TV, the incident Sgt. Anderson was helping investigate was in reference to a 15-year-old girl who accused Wiley of tying her hands with a belt and raping her inside a shop where he was giving her a tattoo.

Wiley was profiled by The New Orleans Advocate as someone who had suffered the loss of his possessions in the August floods. 

The Advocate reports that Wiley has prior felony convictions in East Baton Rouge Parish. He pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated battery in 2005 and was sentenced to 13 months in prison, a year prior to that on two counts of attempted second-degree murder. 

In 2010, WBRZ-TV reports Wiley pled guilty to giving a tattoo to a minor. Just two months later, he was back in jail, accused of licking the chest of a ten year old.
