SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Shreveport police have made one arrest and are searching for another in connection with a deadly shooting last week in Shreveport's Ingleside neighborhood.
32-year-old Jason Williams was shot multiple times at a home in the 4000 block of Virginia Avenue just after 10 p.m. on the night of September 12 as two men attempted to force their way in the front door. Witnesses told police that after the two men were unable to get into the home, they began to fire shots through the door, striking Williams. He was taken to LSU Health Shreveport, where he was pronounced dead.
Police were able to grab still images from surveillance video from the home on the night of the shooting. Police say the surveillance video captured images of "multiple suspects who were present at Williams' home moments prior to the fatal shooting."
Those images were broadcast to the public, which police say ultimately led to helping positively identify two of the three individuals shown. One of them, police say, was 20 year old Cordelro Lensy of the 2900 block of Abbie Street. Investigators got a warrant for his arrest, charging him with one count of second degree murder. He was taken into custody at his home without incident. His bond is set at $200,000.00.
Authorities are still working to establish the identity of a third man shown in the photographs. Anyone with information on this case is urged to call Shreveport Police detectives at 318-673-6955 or Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
