A Lafayette teen has been arrested by the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office on a charge of second-degree murder.
The Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team arrested 17-year-old on Thursday after a felony warrant was executed in the 100 block of Verna Street in Lafayette.
He was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on a charge of second-degree murder. Prier’s bond is set at $500,000.
Prier was previously arrested in December 2017 in connection with the shooting death of Comeaux High student Da’Ni’Cea Maze. Another teenager, 17-year-old Gabriel Breaux, was also arrested on first-degree murder charges in that case.
The Sheriff’s Office did not say in what incident Prier’s second-degree murder charge is connected.
