PORT ARTHUR, Texas — A 22-year-old man was indicted on a murder charge Wednesday in an October 2019 shooting at Avery Trace Apartments in Port Arthur.

Port Arthur Police say Kylan Deion Bazile killed 23-year-old DeShandric Clayton

When police arrived at the apartment complex on October 18, they found Clayton in a breeze way of a building with a single gunshot wound to his chest according to a probable cause affidavit. 

Clayton was taken to a hospital, but later died according to investigators.
