A 57-year-old Baton Rouge man has been indicted on manslaughter in the fatal February shooting of a Scenic Highway car wash employee following an argument.

Gregory Netter, 2863 70th Ave., was charged Thursday by an East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury in the Feb. 9 slaying of Robert Harrison, also 57.

Netter and Harrison got into a fight that was broken up by another car wash worker, a police report states, but Netter pulled out a gun and began swinging it around, trying to hit Harrison. Netter fired the gun during that process, hitting Harrison one time in the chest, the report says.

Manslaughter is punishable by up to 40 years in prison.

The case is assigned to state District Judge Chip Moore.
