SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Detectives with the Shreveport Police Department arrested a man Tuesday on charges of second-degree murder following an early morning shooting of a woman in the city’s Cedar Grove neighborhood. The charge comes more than six years after the man’s initial arrest on domestic violence and aggravated assault charges.

According to online court records, Ramon Adger, 30, of Shreveport, was arrested on aggravated assault with a firearm and domestic abuse battery charges following an incident on December 16, 2012.

According to a police narrative, Adger and his ex-girlfriend got into an argument when he went to pick up his child. The argument began due to “threats made by her new boyfriend,” according to Adger. The victim claimed that Adger “began cursing her and struck her with a closed fist to the right side of her face/chin area.”

The victim claimed that Adger threatened her with a gun at her residence in the 2000 block of Grimmet Drive.

“(The woman) stated Mr. Adger then removed a black handgun from his waist area and stated “I’ll kill you, (expletive)”, while pointing the handgun at her, with her child present," the narrative stated.

Police arrested Adger during a traffic stop while driving his ex-girlfriend’s car. He claimed her handgun was in the vehicle. He denied hitting the woman and threatening her.

The pair dated for several years before they split up in 2010.

On August 5, 2013, charges of aggravated assault with a firearm were dismissed against Adger and he pleaded guilty to domestic abuse battery.

A judge placed Adger on supervised probation for one year and suspended any jail time. Adger was also ordered not to have weapons and perform community service, plus enroll and complete an anger management/domestic violence prevention course.
