A Lake Charles man has been charged with second-degree murder after allegedly shooting another Lake Charles man early Sunday morning.

Lake Charles Police Department officers were dispatched at about 2 a.m. Sunday to 2706 Allen St. in Lake Charles in reference to a shooting, LCPD spokesman Larry Moss said in a news release.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a man deceased in his front yard. The man was later identified as Wilbert J. LaFleur III.
