Brandon Wiley, the man involved in the shooting death of East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's deputy Sgt. Shawn Anderson, died Tuesday evening, State Police said.

Wiley, 30, died in a hospital just before 6 p.m. from a gunshot wound he received when he got into a struggle with Anderson and another deputy, said State Police Trooper 1st Class Bryan Lee. 

Wiley had been listed in critical condition since Saturday.

Anderson, 43, and another deputy had gone to Classic Cuts hair salon off O'Neal Lane late Saturday to question Wiley, a suspect in a rape of a 15-year-old girl, according to the Sheriff's Office.

"Shots were fired" during the struggle that followed between Wiley and the deputies, said Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks. Authorities have not said if Wiley was armed or if he fired any shots during the incident.

The second deputy, who has not been identified, was uninjured in the incident.

Anderson was taken to a hospital where he died that night of a gunshot wound to the trunk, East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner Dr. Beau Clark said Tuesday. 

Wiley had been convicted of crimes in the past, ranging from tattooing of minors to aggravated battery, and was booked remotely Sunday into Parish Prison on three counts: first-degree rape, resisting an officer and tattooing of minors, according to court records.

While few details have been released regarding the shooting, deputies did release a report that detailed the rape allegations. A 15-year-old girl told detectives that on March 12 she called Wiley and asked him to give her a ride to a business where he tattooed her, according to his arrest report.

When he finished the tattoo, she went into the bathroom. When she came out, Wiley grabbed her, tied her hands behind her back and raped her, according to the report.

Wiley has a company registered with the Secretary of State's Office called The Preferred Look LLC, which lists Classic Cuts address as its business location and advertises tattoo work under that business name on Facebook.

However, Wiley is not licensed or registered with the Department of Health to perform commercial body art, according to Bob Johannessen, a department spokesman.

The owner of Classic Cuts, Lilnetta Roach, said Monday that all her employees had their own keys to the strip mall location and it wasn't uncommon for some to stay late to finish lengthy hair appointments.

However, Roach said she did not know of any tattooing being done in her store. She said Wiley had worked as a barber and stylist at her shop since the summer and had always been professional. He showed up on time, was respectful to customers and wore a uniform, she said, adding that she was surprised by the accusations that had been made against him.

"These allegations, I'm not saying they're not true, I just didn't encounter them at the shop at all," Roach said.

Roach said Wiley had a wife and young daughter. The Advocate was unable to contact Wiley's family.
