Baton Rouge Police say the killings of two black men may be racially motivated.

Police say Kenneth Gleason is being questioned as a person of interest in the shootings that happened last Tuesday and Thursday. Shell casings found at the murder scenes showed a connection between the crimes.

Gleason, who is white, is under arrest on separate drug charges since police don't yet have enough evidence to charge him with the murders. However, police say a car Gleason owns fits the description of one possibly linked to the crime.
