Man charged in Baton Rouge murder case
BATON ROUGE – Authorities have charged a person already in jail with the murder of a man during an apparent drug deal.
19-year-old Jarvis Fleming has been charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of 23-year-old Daniel Smith on Oct. 23.
Smith was shot to death early that morning while inside his car in the 2600 block of Osage. BRPD Detectives linked Fleming to evidence at the scene, and said a gun in his possession was later matched to the shooting.
Fleming was already in the parish prison on unrelated charges.
