Teen with ties to NBA Youngboy indicted in murder of 17-year-old
BATON ROUGE - A grand jury indicted Davaughn Tate, a teen with ties to Baton Rouge rapper NBA Youngboy, in the murder of 17-year-old Javon Brown.
Brown was shot to death walking home from school on Ottowa Drive in December. Investigators believe Tate killed him, according to sheriff' office records.
The court has yet to decide on the fate of the two other suspects, Jeffery Tate and Kevin Anderson.
Investigators believe Anderson was wounded by the same bullet that killed Brown. Anderson and Jeffery Tate were arrested as principals to second-degree murder.
Jeffery Tate, who is Davaughn Tate's half-brother, has asked the court to allow him to move to California with NBA Youngboy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden.
Jeffery Tate and Gaulden are also half-brothers. Gaulden is not related to Davaughn Tate.
