BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Police have made an arrest in the shooting death of an East Feliciana Parish School Board member.

Baton Rouge Police report 19-year-old Jacquez Griffin, of Baton Rouge, was arrested Thursday on a charge of first-degree murder in the slaying of 34-year-old Broderick Brooks, of Jackson.
