Man indicted in drug-related shooting death

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A 20-year-old Baton Rouge man has been indicted in the June 9 drug-related shooting death of another man.

An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury on Thursday charged Jeremy Payne with second-degree murder in the slaying of 31-year-old Curtis Mitchell.

Police tell The Advocate they found Mitchell inside his home with a gunshot wound to the chest. He later died from his injuries.

Police said the shooting appears to have been drug related. Police say a drug transaction took place between Mitchell and Payne, but it is not known which man was selling the drugs.

It was unclear whether Payne has an attorney.
