Police are releasing the name of a man shot to death while allegedly breaking into a home in west Shreveport early Thanksgiving morning.

At approximately 2:39 a.m. Shreveport officers were called to an apartment home in the 9000 block of Walker Road to a disorderly person call. The caller told dispatchers that a man they knew was kicking in the door of the apartment. Upon arrival moments later, police found 25-year old Edward J. Williams with from a single gunshot wound to the head. Williams was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives learned Williams allegedly kicked in the door and then entered the house of his ex-girlfriend where she lives with her boyfriend and two small children. Investigators believe Williams aggressively approached the woman's boyfriend who pulled a gun and fired several shots at Williams , hitting him once.

At this time no charges have been filed.
