K-9 helps SPD find suspected robber

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Investigators say a police K-9 helped capture the man accused of trying to rob the very man giving him a ride home.

They say Courtney Johnson gave the suspect, Shamichael Edwards a lift home, after Club Hush closed in Downtown Shreveport.

But police say during the drive, Edwards found a gun in the car, and tried to hold-up Johnson, who said he didn't have any money.

Investigators say Edwards ran away, and was tracked down in the 4000 block of Joplin Street, where he put-up a fight, and the K-9 was called in.
