A 28-year-old Baton Rouge man is under indictment in the May 14 shooting death of one man and wounding of another on Oak Park Drive.
Roman Montrell Trosclair, 7263 Maplewood Drive, was charged with second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder by an East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury Wednesday.
The indictment alleges Trosclair killed 24-year-old Dederick Droze.
Sheriff’s officials have said Droze and another man picked up Trosclair on May 14 and drove to a convenience store in the 6000 block of Oak Park Drive. After leaving the store, Trosclair fired shots at Droze and the other man, authorities said. Droze died at the scene and the other man was treated for critical injuries.
Detectives identified Trosclair using surveillance video from a nearby convenience store, sheriff’s officials said.
A second-degree murder conviction would carry a mandatory sentence of life in prison.
Trosclair’s case has been assigned to state District Judge Mike Erwin.
