Shots-fired incident leads to suspect’s arrest

A local man faces criminal charges following his alleged involvement in a shots-fired incident in west Shreveport last weekend.

Shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday, Shreveport police patrol officers were called to the 3000 block of Devaughn Street in reverence to reports that a man was firing a weapon near by.

When officers arrived in the area, they were directed to a residence located in the 3000 block of Devaughn Street, where they made contact with 22-year-old Antonio Ramone Beverly. Authorities were in receipt of reports alleging that a man fitting Beverly’s physical description had been seen firing multiple rounds from a handgun prior to the officers’ arrival.

While talking with the suspect, authorities were able to gather information confirming Beverly’s alleged involvement in the incident.

It was further learned that Beverly fired multiple rounds from a handgun into the air for no apparent reason.

The weapon believed used during the incident was recovered at the scene of the crime,  along with additional evidence corroborating statements officers received regarding the matter.

Beverly was taken into police custody without incident and transported to the Shreveport City Jail for booking. He has since been charged with a single count of illegal use of a weapon.
