Police obtain warrants for Highland homicide
Authorities have obtained warrants for the arrest of two men following an ongoing investigation into a fatal shooting in Shreveport’s Highland neighborhood Monday morning.
Just after 3 a.m., Shreveport police patrol officers were called to a residence in the 3100 block of Holly Street in reference to a man who had been shot there.
When officers arrived, it was learned that 48-year-old William David Carroll had been shot once in the upper body.
Carroll was declared dead on the scene.
Patrol officers detained a man present inside the home at the time of the shooting. However, the man has not been named a suspect in the investigation.
Violent-crimes detectives and crime scene personnel gathered preliminary information at the scene of the crime which suggests that Carroll and a male associate were inside the residence when two suspects, one of whom was armed with a handgun, entered the residence in an apparent attempt to rob them.
At some point during the ordeal, one of the suspects reportedly fired a weapon, striking Carroll.
Both suspects, described only as black males, fled the scene of the crime on foot.
No other injuries were reported.
Since the launch of the investigation, information and evidence have been gathered linking two men to the slaying.
Robert Lynn, 41, and Kinoy Damon Singleton, 35, both of Shreveport. have been named as suspects in the homicide and are actively being sought by authorities.
Singleton faces a charge of second-degree murder with a bond amount set at $450,000, while Lynn faces a charge of principal to second-degree murder with a bond set at $325,000.
