Suspect jailed on warrant following double shooting
PRESS RELEASE Shreveport Police Department
A local man is now behind bars following his arrest Wednesday morning by Shreveport police officers.
Just after 8:30 a.m., Shreveport police officers arrived at a home in the 400 block of Mayfair Drive in reference to executing an arrest warrant.
The person sought in connection with the warrant was Demarcy Armstrong, 18, who was found inside the residence and arrested without incident.
Armstrong was wanted in connection with a double shooting that injured two men back on Dec. 30, 2013, and he now faces two counts of attempted firstdegree murder.
During the ongoing investigation, detectives were able to link Armstrong to the crime.
Authorities believe Armstrong was engaged in the sale or purchase of illegal narcotics when a dispute arose between him and the two men who were apparently shot by Armstrong.
Following his arrest, Armstrong was booked into the Shreveport City Jail. Bond in the matter has been set at $130,000.
