LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A 20-year-old man has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder following a shooting in the 1500 block of Fournet Street early Wednesday morning.

When officers responded to the call at 7:38 a.m., they found 27-year-old Robert Bracy dead of apparent gunshot wounds, said Lt. Richard Harrell, Lake Charles Police Department spokesman.
