A local man suspected of shooting another man in west Shreveport yesterday afternoon has been jailed.
At approximately 4:37 p.m. on January 17, 2012, Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to the 2600 block of Vivian Street relative to a reported shooting. Upon arrival, patrolmen located 22 year old Johnathan Shaw with a bullet wound to the lower posterior. Shaw was transported to a local hospital by the Shreveport Fire Department with what was described as a serious but non-life-threatening injury.
Detectives soon learned that Shaw and 49 year old Clyde Burns were apparently involved in some type of physical altercation there on Vivian Street near Portland Avenue when Burns allegedly produced a handgun and shot the victim. Burns, of the 2800 block of Vivian Street in Shreveport, surrendered to investigators at the Shreveport Police Complex today and was subsequently booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count of attempted second degree murder. Burns’ mugshot is not immediately available as the booking procedures are still ongoing at this time.
