Shreveport, LA — A man accused of shooting a teenage victim is now in police custody following his arrest today by authorities.
Back on February 7th, Shreveport Police officers responded to a reported shooting in the 5200 block of Kent Street. During the investigation, officers learned that a 14 year old male had received a non life-threatening gunshot wound to the leg. Upon initially receiving conflicting versions of what transpired the night of the shooting, detectives were ultimately able to gather information which developed 23 year old La Calvin Williams of Shreveport as a suspect in the shooting.
On today, agents with the United States Marshals Task Force were able to locate and apprehend LaCalvin Williams in Plain Dealing, Louisiana. Williams, who was wanted on a warrant charging him with the illegal use of a weapon, had apparently been on the run since February 15 after successfully evading officers who attempted to take him into custody. Following his arrest, Williams was subsequently booked into the Bossier Maximum Security Jail and has a bond amount set at 50,000.00.
