LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A grand jury has indicted the Lafayette teenager suspected of killing an Arnaudville man Sunday night.

The 15-year-old was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Michael Patin at a flea market.

Lafayette Parish sheriff’s Capt. Kip Judice said the 49-year-old Patin was shot in the back as he investigated a possible vehicle theft at the Jockey Lot flea market just after 11 p.m. Sunday.

The Lafayette Parish District Attorney’s Office presented the case to a grand jury on Wednesday.

District Attorney Michael Harson told The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1l0eHg3 ) on Monday that he probably would charge the teen as an adult.

The teen is being held without bond at the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.
