BATON ROUGE - Police identified a man found shot to death at a Baton Rouge apartment complex overnight.

Lt. Don Kelly said Clement Legea, 45, was found dead lying on the sidewalk inside an apartment complex at 11445 Bard Street just after midnight today.

Kelly said they were still looking for a male dressed in dark clothing who was seen running from the scene, and who is suspected to be involved in the shooting.

Kelly said while they are still working to postively determine the motive for the shooting, it appeared to have been drug-related.

Anyone with information about this killing should call the Baton Rouge Police Homicide Division at (225) 389-4869.

News 2's Rob Krieger will have more on this investigation and reaction from the community coming up tonight at 5 and 6.
