 Shreveport, LA. – Members of the U.S. Marshals Service Violent Offender Task Force in Shreveport are working closely with the Shreveport Police Department attempting to locate and apprehend Isaiah “Zay” Martin, a fugitive wanted for the June 30th attempted murder of uniformed Shreveport Police officers.

Martin’s was the front seat passenger in a vehicle stopped by police and when asked to exit the vehicle produced a semi-automatic handgun and opened fire on officers barely missing striking one officer in the head. Officers returned fire and based on evidence obtained by police appear to have struck Martin at least once. Martin has yet to receive medical attention for his injuries and is likely in hiding in the Shreveport area. Anyone found to be aiding Martin will be criminally charged. In Martin’s young adult life he has had numerous arrests for serious weapons law violations and since 2015 has at least five previous arrests mostly related to him possessing firearms. He should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.

The U.S. Marshals are offering a reward up to $5,000 and Shreveport Crime Stoppers are providing $1,000 for information leading to his arrest. Northwest Louisiana residents can expect to soon see digital billboards asking for the public’s support with this intense manhunt.
If you have any information regarding the location of Martin or information that may help law enforcement with his apprehension, please call the U.S. Marshals at 1-800-336-0102, or email usms.wanted@usdoj.gov.

This challenge is compounded by the closure of many rural banks. Larger banks often buy smaller banks, then close branches in more rural markets. There are now 625 rural counties in the country without a community bank. There are 37 counties without a single bank, and 115 counties served by just one bank.

What they will not do, because they can't, is remember: Remember a time before the 9/11 attacks, or the changes in American society that took place in the aftermath of those attacks. They won't be equipped to yearn for better days that they've only heard about at second-hand from their parents and grandparents.
