Second arrest made in man’s shooting death
A second suspect has been arrested in connection with a shooting that claimed the life of a man in west Shreveport last Friday night, April 11.
At about 9 p.m. last Friday, Shreveport patrol officers responded to reports of a man being shot at an apartment complex located in the 3700 block of Valley View Drive.
When officers arrived, witnesses reported that a man had been shot following a physical altercation. Officers subsequently discovered an adult male suffering multiple gunshot wounds to the upper torso.
The victim, later identified as 30-year-old Tyrone Youngblood of Shreveport, was transported to University Health Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Authorities previously arrested Derrick J. Thomas, 18, of the 3200 block of Mackey Lane, who surrendered himself to Shreve port police violent crimes investigators at about 7 p.m. Saturday, shortly after investigators procured a warrant for his arrest. He was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count of seconddegree murder.
Investigators also arrested Thomas’s father, Derrick Jevon Clark, 24, after evidence linked him to the shooting as well. The information suggested that Clark may have participated in the destruction of evidence connected to the murder. Clark was arrested at his home on Bernice Street and booked into the city jail.
