It Looks Like the Media Lied Again, When They Charged “Authorities” with Having Refused to Release Details in East Baton Rouge Murder of White Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Shawn T. Anderson; Black Suspect was Once Arrested for “Two Counts of Attempted Second-Degree Murder,” but Did Only One Year Inside for Them

I spotted this one also and got immediately suspicious when every article I could find said "authorities" weren't releasing details on the suspect. After an exhaustive search I finally found an article that posted the suspects picture and name. No surprises here:
As this and the following photographs of Brandon Wiley attest, the Baton Rouge Advocate put together a veritable photoessay on the cop-killing suspect, about whom other media outlets asserted the police had not provided any photographs or information. Kudos to reader-researcher Jerry PDX!

Brandon Wiley, suspected in the fatal shooting of an East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputy Saturday night, has prior felony convictions in East Baton Rouge Parish, according to online 19th Judicial District Court records.
Wiley was booked remotely into the jail on Sunday on three counts related to the sheriff's office investigation of him: first-degree rape, resisting an officer and illegal tattooing of a minor.

State Police are still investigating the shooting of Sgt. Shawn T. Anderson, so more charges could be filed against Wiley, Trooper Bryan Lee said.
Wiley was sentenced to four months in jail following a 2010 conviction for unlawfully tattooing a minor, according to online 19th Judicial District Court records.
He pleaded guilty to a count of aggravated battery in 2005 and was sentenced to 13 months in prison following an arrest the year before on two counts of attempted second-degree murder, according to the records. He was also sentenced to two years in prison in 2011 for "inciting
a felony" after being arrested for indecent behavior with a juvenile, the records state.
A federal judge sentenced Wiley to two years in prison following a plea agreement on a count of illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, according to online federal court documents.
Wiley worked out of Classic Cuts salon, according to comments he made to The Advocate in August. At the time, he was applying for Federal Emergency Management Agency benefits, saying he had lost his possessions in the flood.
He 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.
His Facebook page also promotes several late-night tattoo parties at the salon, at least one of which Wiley wrote in a December post would run from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
In a picture taken by a photographer for The Advocate in August, Wiley shows off numerous tattoos on his arms and chest.
The owner of Classic Cuts, Lilnetta Roach, said Sunday morning before details of the shooting were released that all her employees had their own keys to the strip-mall location and said it wasn't uncommon for some of her workers to be at the location until late into the night.
Roach said she understood that a male worker — whom she didn't identify by name — was in the store until late Saturday night.
