Shreveport Police investigate fatal stabbing

 A local man has died following a stabbing that occurred in north Shreveport Tuesday evening.


Just after 7:00 p.m. on September 3, 2013, Shreveport Police responded to a stabbing call at a residence located in the 1600 block of David Raines Road.  Upon the arrival of officers, information was gathered that a 32 year old male victim suffered a single stab wound to the abdomen following an argument involving a known suspect while at the home.  Police learned the victim, 32 year old Frank Smith, succumbed to his injuries shortly upon transport to LSUHSC. 


Shreveport Police Violent Crimes detectives responded to the scene of the crime immediately launching an inquiry into the stabbing.  Preliminary investigation suggests Smith was involved in a verbal dispute with 51 year old Carl Love, when the dispute turned physical.  It is alleged that Smith, upon arming himself with a blunt object, initiated an attack on Love, who reportedly stabbed Smith in response.  Love was interviewed by police investigators while at Shreveport Police headquarters and released.  At current, no charges have been filed in the matter as the investigation continues.

The Louisiana Legislature just completed a “do nothing” session that proved to be a stalemate towards solving the state’s financial crisis. A new regular session has begun with few signs that anything substantive will come about. By law, no new tax matters can be considered in this even numbered year.

Flurry’s second objection to the ordinance is the requirement that permit application for cell towers must be reviewed by the city’s independent expert consultant. The city has been working with a national consultant who has a track record of requiring unreasonable, expensive requirements for cell tower installations.

Every five years, several ad valorem property taxes are placed before the citizens for renewals that provide basic city services and salaries/ benefits for our first responders and other city employees. The last time this occurred was 2013. In 2017 the taxes expired, and we made the decision to only go out for the taxes when necessary, and not before.
