Second arrest made in deadly drug deal shooting
BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies announced a second arrest in connection with a deadly shooting during a drug deal last week.
Deputies arrested Julius Thomas, 23, on suspicion of first degree murder Monday evening. They previously arrested Jarvis Fleming, 21, also on suspicion of first degree murder.

Deputies are continuing their investigation into the shooting and said more arrests are pending.
