U.S. MARSHALS HUNT FOR ATTEMPTED COP KILLER
Reward of up to $5,000 being offered for information directly leading to arrest
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
