Baton Rouge Man Indicted In Slaying
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A 21-year-old Baton Rouge man has been indicted in the June 22 shooting death of a 19-year-old man.
On Thursday, an East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury charged Quinton Davis with second-degree murder in the killing of Malcolm Johnson.
Prior to the shooting, sheriff's office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks said Johnson was on his way home when he stopped to talk to a group of people. She tells The Advocate Johnson got into an argument with Davis, who pulled out a gun and shot Johnson multiple times.
A second-degree murder conviction would carry an automatic sentence of life in prison.
