BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The suspect in a broad daylight killing went before a grand jury that pretermitted the case Thursday, meaning they could neither move forward nor dismiss the charges of second-degree murder.

Reginald Scott, 36, of Baton Rouge, is charged with second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon in connection with the shooting death of D'Andre Smith, 35.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office reported it happened on Summer Drive, which is off Airline Highway, on June 11 around 1 p.m.

Casey Rayborn Hicks, spokeswoman for EBRSO, said Smith reportedly went to Scott's house and the two got into a fight in the front yard. She added reports further indicate at some point Scott pulled out a gun, shot Smith several times and then drove off.

Court officials reported Scott was out on bond at the time after a simple battery arrest. They added he has other pending legal cases.
