Police in Baton Rouge have arrested Dyteon Simpson for the fatal shooting of LSU basketball player Wayde Sims.

Paul noted his department had received videos that captured the shooting and the events preceding it. They are shown scuffling and throwing punches near some vehicles.

Detectives recovered Simpson's glasses, which were knocked off during the fight, Paul said.

After questioning Simpson, police said he admitted to fatally shooting Wayde. The investigation is ongoing.

"Detectives are attempting to identify and locate the individual who is seen towards the end of the video on the right side of the screen wearing red trousers with a white stripe down the leg and a gray shirt", Baton Rouge police said. "And the community in Baton Rouge is getting sick and exhausted of the violence that's going on in this community".
