BATON ROUGE - An 18-year-old has been indicted in the Nov. 2 shooting death of another man at the crowded Greater Baton Rouge State Fair.

An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury on Thursday indicted Keithdrick Lamond Pier of Baton Rouge on a second-degree murder charge.

He faces an automatic sentence of life in prison if convicted in the killing of 20-year-old Darrius Scott of Baton Rouge.

Pier was in Parish Prison and it was not immediately clear whether he has an attorney.

Records show Pier has a history of gun-related offenses. He pleaded guilty in August to simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling. The charge stemmed from an April burglary when authorities say Pier broke into a home and stole a .357-caliber handgun.
