BATON ROUGE - A Baker man accused of fatally shooting LSU basketball player Wayde Sims last year has been indicted on one count of second-degree murder.

20-year-old Dyteon Simpson of Baker, Louisiana was arrested last year and charged with second-degree murder. The swift arrest came nearly 24 hours after Simpson pulled a gun on Sims during a videotaped fight near Southern University in September.

Simpson later admitted to police he "intentionally" shot Sims, according to arrest records. Simpson's bond was set at $350,000.

Sims was a Junior and LSU basketball player. Before LSU, he attended University Laboratory School. He was the 2014-2015 Louisiana Gatorade Player of the Year and was chosen for the First Team All-State selection.
