Police issue warrant for shooting suspect
A Shreveport man is being sought by police in connection with a shooting that injured a local man earlier this month.
Back on March 1, Shreveport police officers responded to a shooting that took place near the intersection of Burke Street and Parkridge Street in west Shreveport.
When officers arrived on the scene, they discovered the victim, an 18-year-old male, suffering a single gunshot wound to the leg. The victim’s injuries were considered to be non-life-threatening, and he refused medical treatment.
Since the shooting, Shreveport police violent-crimes detectives have gathered evidence linking a suspect, 20-year -old Jamarzia Leonard of the 6400 block of Quillen Boulevard in Shreveport, to the crime.
Investigators have procured a warrant for his arrest. Leonard now faces a single count of aggravated seconddegree battery. Bond in the matter has been set at $100,000.
Anyone with any information regarding Leonard’s whereabouts is asked to call Caddo Crime Stoppers at 673-7373 or on their Web site at www.lockemup. org.
