Vehicle missing from homicide scene found
Authorities have located a missing vehicle believed to have been involved in last week’s double homicide in Shreveport’s Allendale neighborhood.
Just after 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Shreveport police patrol officers responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle parked near the intersection of Merwin Street and Hassett Avenue. The vehicle was described as a green Pontiac Sunfire.
Upon arrival, patrolmen positively identified the car to be the one that authorities were seeking as part of their ongoing investigation into the shooting deaths of 22 -year-old Nikko Taylor and 16- year-old Rajean George.
Detectives were immediately notified and responded to the scene along with crime scene investigators. The vehicle was subsequently impounded and will be processed in an effort to locate and recover any potential evidence.
Shreveport police officers responded to a home located in the 1800 block of Weinstock Street last Friday, March 7, just after 5 p.m. in reference to a 911 call reporting the discovery of a deceased man in the residence.
The man was initially discovered by a family member who arrived at the home after being unable to make phone contact with him.
When officers arrived, it was discovered that the victim, identified as Taylor, was deceased, suffering an apparent gunshot wound to the upper body.
Upon conducting a search of the residence, authorities found the deceased body of a female inside the home, also suffering what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the upper body.
During the investigation, police learned that a green, 1997 Pontiac Sunfire sedan driven by Taylor was missing from the home. The investigation is continuing as authorities work to identify and apprehend the person or persons responsible.
