SHREVEPORT, La. -

A man wanted for murder in Montana may be in Shreveport right now. Authorities are looking for Kevin Joseph Lino, 27. They say he's one of the people responsible for a killing in Missoula, Montana last month.

Friday evening, the search led the FBI, State Police and Shreveport Police to the wooded area between Clyde Fant Parkway and the Red River, directly under the Shreveport-Barksdale Bridge. Authorities had guns drawn and were in the woods looking for Lino. That area is often used by walkers, runners and bikers, both on the paved trail next to the road and the trails by the river, referred to as the Stoner Trails. 

According to the FBI's website, Lino may be headed to the eastern United States as he and his girlfriend, Angela Marchese, 27, have ties to West Virginia, Massachusetts and Louisiana. The couple is known to be transient, and it is likely that they are stopping at food banks and shelters. They may also stay in homeless camps. Authorities also say Lino, who loves to boar hunt, trap/trade fur and train pit bulls, may have a connection to Shreveport. Marchese only has one leg and uses a wheelchair or crutches. Possibly with the pair are two white males in their twenties and/or a white male in his sixties, who are not fugitives from the law. They may be in possession of nine pit bull puppies.

Lino is accused of killing Gilbert Berry, a transient whose body was discovered earlier this month floating in the Clark Fork River in Missoula County, Montana. Authorities say Lino should be considered armed and dangerous.

Kevin Joseph Lino is white, 27 years old, between 6'1" and 6'4" and weighs about 135 pounds. Lino was last known to be traveling in a white, four-door 2014 Ford Focus SE with temporary West Virginia license plates 285026. The vehicle is registered in Oklahoma and was last seen on August 11 in Monument, Colorado.
