Just before 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday August 6, 2013, Shreveport Police discovered an adult male victim suffering what appeared to be a single stab wound to the lower body near the intersection of Walker Road at Mackey Lane.

Shreveport Police Violent Crimes detectives responded to the scene and were able to uncover additional information linking Barry to the stabbing for which he was subsequently arrested and charged. Barry was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on charges of aggravated battery.
