BATON ROUGE - An arrest has been made in connection with the shooting death of a 59-year-old man on Florida Street last month, according to police in Baton Rouge.

Detectives believe that Marlon Carter, 41, of Zachary was involved in a dispute with Charles Vincent just before the shooting that left Vincent dead happened.

Police said Carter was already being held in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of resisting arrest and felon in possession of a firearm from an incident unrelated to the shooting.

As of Wednesday, Carter is also accused of second degree murder, illegal use of a weapon and another felon in possession of a firearm charge for his suspect involvement in Vincent's death.

Charles Vincent was shot to death shortly after midnight at a bus station on Florida Street on July 14.

It was later revealed that he was homeless at the time and was trying to travel back to family in Texas when he was killed.
