A homeless man has been arrested in connection with the slaying of a person who was found in a shopping center parking lot.

Lorenzo Green, 36, was booked with second-degree murder, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputies say.

Deputies were called to a shopping center on La. 14 in Lake Charles at about 10:45 a.m., deputies say. They found a dead man behind the shopping center, and an investigation led them to Lorenzo Green, 36, as a suspect, deputies say.

Green was booked with second-degree murder.

The investigation is in the preliminary stages and there is no further information available at this time. Next of kin has not been notified so the victim’s name has not been released.

The Calcasieu Coroner will determine cause of death.
