A local teen is now being sought by authorities in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred last week in west Shreveport.

Just after 2:00 p.m. this afternoon, 17 year old Ravion Alford, accompanied by a family member, arrived at police headquarters where he surrendered to authorities without incident.  Alford was wanted on an outstanding warrant for principal to second degree murder following the March 2, 2013 shooting death of 18 year old Chauncey Broadway Jr.


Broadway was shot and killed after a home he was visiting in the 7000 block of Burlingame Boulevard was the target of a shooting.  Three other men inside the home were subsequently injured during the shooting. A 15 year old male has also been arrested and charged in connection to the shooting.  Alford has been charged with principal to second degree murder along with six counts of attempted second degree murder.  Following interviews with investigators, Alford was booked into the Shreveport City Jail.  His bond has been set at 500,000.00.

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.
