SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A homeless man wanted for murder in Montana has been captured by law enforcement Southwest Shreveport after an 18-hour search. 

Kevin Joseph Lino, 27, is a convicted felon and is considered to be armed and dangerous. Lino has a Montana state warrant for his arrest for the deliberate homicide of a victim near Missoula, MT.

Shreveport police, FBI agents, U.S. Marshals and state began searching for him Saturday afternoon after receiving a tip that he was in the area of Clyde Fant Parkway near the Shreveport Barksdale Bridge, but came up empty-handed. Later Friday night, police began tracking Lino again after a car was reported stolen from a business parking lot in Shreve City, but were unable to track him down. 

Acting on another tip, police began searching Saturday near a bridge along Mansfield Road between Valley View Drive and Kingston Rd. There, police were able to track Lino to a wooded area near a set of railroad tracks below the Mansfield Rd. viaduct. He was taken into custody around 6 p.m. without incident and booked as a fugitive in to the Shreveport City Jail. 

According to the FBI, Lino allegedly shot a male victim in the head with a 9mm pistol, then dumped the body into the Clark Fork River on Aug. 5 in Missoula County. They said around July 30 Lino and two other males kicked and punched the victim after an argument at a homeless camp under a bridge. They then allegedly cut gang symbols into the man with a knife and Lino then urinated on him.
