Shreveport, LA (KSLA) - The Shreveport Police Detectives are looking for a man in connection with a shooting in west Shreveport that happened late last month. After interviewing witnesses, investigators were able to identify a suspect and obtained an arrest warrant for 18-year old Charzavius Rogers of the 3000 block of Terry Street in Shreveport. Rogers is wanted on one count of illegal use of a weapon. His bond is set at $75,000.
It all dates back to the incident that happened late July. At approximately 11:48 p.m. on July 31, 2010 Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to a home in the 2700 block of Amherst Street relative to a shooting. Upon arrival there, officers found 20 year Lorenzo Dunkentell suffering from a single gunshot wound to his chest. Dunkentell was transported to LSUHSC by the Shreveport Fire Department with what was described as a life-threatening injury.
Detectives were immediately dispatched and learned that there had been an ongoing dispute between two groups of young men in that neighborhood. This dispute led to a large fight during which at least one participant produced a handgun and began firing shots. One of those shots subsequently struck Dunkentell in the chest.
