A suspect wanted by authorities for shooting a man last month in Shreveport’s Allendale neighborhood is now in police custody.
Detectives report 22-year old Demetrius Stewart, of Shreveport, surrendered himself at the Shreveport Police Complex Monday afternoon. Stewart, who had a warrant outstanding for his arrest charging him with one count of aggravated second degree battery, was subsequently booked into the Shreveport City Jail. His bond had been set at $100,000.
Detectives believe Stewart shot 22-year old Sam Anderson in the early morning hours of January 1, 2012 during a dispute between the two men in the 1600 block of Milam Street. Anderson and Stewart are known to each other.
Anderson was treated and later released from a local hospital for several non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.
