BATON ROUGE —- Baton Rouge Police have made an arrest after an early morning murder Monday, Nov. 13.

When officers arrived, they found Wilson unresponsive. He was transported to an area hospital but did not survive his injuries.
A motive has not been released at this time into the shooting.
Pearl is charged with second degree murder and illegal use of a weapon.
