 A Shreveport man is left recovering from injuries sustained after being stabbed during a dispute Tuesday evening near west Shreveport.


Just before 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday August 6, 2013, Shreveport Police discovered an adult male victim suffering what appeared to be a single stab wound to the lower body near the intersection of Walker Road at Mackey Lane. The man, identified as 22 year old Michael McClanahan was observed by a patrol officer, who spotted McClanahan covered in blood, running on foot.  McClanahan provided authorities with a brief account of what transpired moments before the stabbing, indicating he was familiar with the suspect.    McClanahan was subsequently transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries that were described as potentially life threatening.



Police located and detained a suspect in the stabbing identified as 53 year old David Barry of Shreveport.  Barry was taken into custody in the parking lot of a discount store on Walker Road at Mackey Lane after information was gathered he had possibly stabbed McClanahan following a dispute between the two over money.  Shreveport Police Violent Crimes detectives responded to the scene and were able to uncover additional information linking Barry to the stabbing for which he was subsequently arrested and charged.  Barry was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on charges of aggravated battery.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
