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.

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.
