Shreveport police investigates Friday morning homicide

Shreveport, LA(KSLA)- Shreveport Police detectives are looking for a local teenager wanted in connection with an early morning shooting that claimed the life of a south Louisiana man.

Shreveport Police responded to a reported shooting at around 3:49 a.m. Friday morning, in the 5700 block of S. Lakeshore Drive. Upon arrival, officers located two adult males in a vehicle there, one of whom was suffering from at least one gunshot wound to the torso. The victim, whose name is not being released at this time pending notification of his next of kin, was transported to LSUHSC by the Shreveport Fire Department where he was later pronounced deceased.

Detectives and crime scene investigators were dispatched and immediately began their investigation. Investigators contacted the male who was with the victim at the time of the shooting and determined that the men, who are both from south Louisiana, were in Shreveport on business. After interviewing the witness for some time, detectives believe the shooting took place near the intersection of Stonewall Street and Mertis Avenue in Shreveport's Queensborough neighborhood. Based on information gathered and evidence recovered during their investigation, detectives believe the two men went to that location to purchase illegal narcotics when a male suspect produced a handgun and shot at them, striking the victim. The other man then drove the victim to S. Lakeshore Drive and notified authorities.

Police detectives were able to develop a suspect and have obtained an arrest warrant charging 19 year old Anthony T. Lee, of the 3500 block of Darien Street in Shreveport, with one count of second degree murder. Investigators believe Anthony T. Lee should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with any information regarding Anthony T. Lee or his whereabouts is urged to call Shreveport Police detectives at 318-673-6955 or Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
