BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - U.S. Marshals arrested 20-year-old Aramis Jackson just before noon Tuesday.  Law enforcement spent the morning searching three homes in Baton Rouge, not far from where Allie Engler and her daughter were shot.

Investigators tell 9 News it isn't only what the suspects took from the home in Beauregard Town, it's what they left behind that's been so helpful.

Investigators found DNA inside the house, which could have come from several things, like sweat or contact DNA, when a suspect touches something inside.  Sources tell 9 News they collected plenty of evidence.

As for what was taken from the home, detectives tell 9 News witnesses saw Aramis Jackson shortly after the crime, with a flat-screen television missing from the home.  They also say the witnesses saw him with a gun.

Officers and deputies spent much of the day hitting several homes fairly close to the crime scene looking for their suspect and looking for more evidence.  They hit homes along Royal, Myrtle and Arizona Street.

9 News has been told that detectives believe the suspects possibly tried to break into several homes on Friday morning.

U.S. Marshals followed tips that led them to a friend's house where Jackson was hiding.  Baton Rouge Police Detectives armed with very strong evidence will now have their chance to talk with Jackson face to face.
