Louisiana church fires: Law enforcement official's son taken into custody, reports say [View all]

A man arrested in connection with fires at three historically black Louisiana churches is a law enforcement official's son, according to local reports.
Authorities said they will announce significant updates in the case -- in which three churches were burned in 10 days -- at a news conference Thursday at 10 a.m. (11 a.m. ET) at the St. Landry Parish Sheriff Public Safety Complex in Opelousas.
Officials with knowledge of the investigation told CNN on Wednesday night that a 21-year old man from St. Landry Parish was arrested in connection with the fires.

CNN has been provided the name of the subject but is not reporting it until it is announced by authorities.
St. Mary Baptist Church in Port Barre burned on March 26, followed by Greater Union Baptist Church in Opelousas on April 2 and two days later, Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in the same town.
The fires are believed to have been intentionally set, a local elected official said Tuesday.

Officials are also investigating a fourth, smaller fire on March 31 at the predominantly white Vivian United Pentecostal Church in Caddo Parish, more than 200 miles north of St. Landry. The blaze was intentionally set.

CNN has a name but they are not reporting it? Interesting.
