Arrest made in west Shreveport shooting

A suspect has been arrested in connection with a shooting that occurred last week in west Shreveport.

On Feb. 21, Shreveport police violent crimes detectives were called to investigate a shooting in the 1600 block of Woodrow Street. They arrived to learn that 64 -year-old Albert Joiner was shot during a robbery and was transported Ochsner LSU Health Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives learned that Joiner let a male acquaintance enter his residence to use his phone. As Joiner was going to get the phone, the suspect produced a handgun and shot him once in the head. The suspect then took an unknown amount of money from Joiner’s pants pocket and fled the scene.

Evidence from the scene combined with other investigative findings led detectives to identify Stevie Henderson, 41, as the alleged gunman in the murder attempt.

On Tuesday morning, investigators located Henderson in the 2300 block of Levy Street. Following a brief foot pursuit, Henderson was apprehended and transported to the Shreveport Police Complex for questioning.

Following interviews, Henderson was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count each of attempted first-degree murder, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, resisting, and on a fugitive warrant from Texas for failing to register as a sex offender.
