BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - The man accused of shooting and killing a man last month in South Bossier was indicted this week by a Bossier Parish Grand Jury.

Detectives say 39-year-old Patrick Newton Harris and 40-year-old William Christopher Flowers got into an argument on March 24, when Harris reportedly pulled out a gun and shot Flowers.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found Flowers lying on the sidewalk in front of Harris' home in the 200 block of Melissa Lane in the Madison Place subdivision. Police say Flowers suffered from multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to University Health hospital where he later died.

Authorities say Harris was found in the garage of his home and taken into custody. He was booked into the Bossier City Jail and later transferred to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility where he is charged with second degree murder. His bond is set at $750,000.

Monday, Harris was indicted by the grand jury and was formally arraigned Tuesday.

His next court date is unknown.

Harris remains incarcerated in the Bossier Maximum Security Facility.
