An Alexandria man was indicted Wednesday on two counts of second-degree murder and one count of attempted second-degree murder in a deadly Dec. 27 shooting at an apartment in Lafayette.
Tavis Deon Jenkins, 21, is charged in the deaths of Antonio Means, 17, and Linton Batiste, 23, and for trying to kill Breanna Roy, according to the 15th District Attorney’s Office.
