 One man has been arrested and charged with Attempted Second Degree Homicide following a stabbing that occurred early Thanksgiving morning.

 

At approximately 8:00 a.m. on November 28, 2013, Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to the 200 block of W. 79th Street relative to a stabbing. Upon arrival patrolmen found 32 year old Lorenzo Lewis of Shreveport suffering from a laceration to his upper torso. Woodson was subsequently transported to University Health Center by the Shreveport Fire Department with what has been described as possible life-threatening injuries.

 

Investigators immediately responded to the scene of the crime and, upon further investigation, discovered Lewis and a man known to him, later identified as 55 year old Dwayne Goins, were involved in an apparent dispute.  During the altercation, Goins allegedly pulled a knife and stabbed Lewis before fleeing the scene.

 

Shreveport Police patrol officers were quickly able to locate the suspect in the surrounding area.  Goins was taken into police custody and transported to Shreveport City Jail where he has now been charged with one count of Attempted Second Degree Homicide.  The victim is still recovering from his injuries and is listed in stable condition at this time.
