LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A grand jury indicted a Louisville man after police say he shot a man sitting on a porch in West Louisville. Markelle White is being charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence.

Wilson was sitting on his front porch when a group of people approached him, then an argument ensued  and escalated into gunfire.

Charlton, who was arrested last week, was charged with murder, and his accomplice in the shooting, White is being held on a $1 million bond.
