Shreveport — Authorities have captured a fugitive wanted in connection with a shooting that left a local man seriously injured.
Back in early June of 2014, Shreveport Police officers responded to a reported shooting outside of a store in the 300 block of Pierre Avenue. Upon arrival, patrolmen discovered 59 year old Eddie George suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the lower body. George was subsequently transported to University Health Center by the Shreveport Fire Department with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Detectives were notified and, based on information and evidence gathered during their inquiry, believe George was walking out of the store there on Pierre Avenue when he was approached by 22 year old Ladarius Williams who attempted to rob him. During the course of the robbery, Williams produced a handgun and fired several shots at the victim before fleeing the scene of the crime on foot. Investigators secured an arrest warrant charging Williams with one count of attempted first degree murder.
Just after 9:00 p.m. on July 9, 2014, officers located Williams near the intersection of Missouri Avenue and Poland Street and took him into custody. Williams, of the 5000 block of Greenwood Road in Shreveport, was summarily booked into the Shreveport City Jail on the outstanding warrant.
