Two men have been indicted with second-degree murder in connection with the August slaying of local boxer Brandon Broussard.

The shooting happened late at night on Grossie Lane. They found Broussard suffering from gunshot wounds; he was transported to a hospital but did not survive.

Friends and coaches confirm that Broussard was a local boxer. He was known as “King Tut” and has boxed professionally for several years. He trained at Carencro’s Backstreet Boxing Club, his friends tell KATC.

As a professional, Broussard had a record of five wins and three losses.
