SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
Shreveport Police have arrested three men and recovered an assault rifle in connection with an attempted home invasion late Monday night.
The incident began at the Southfield Apartments in the 100 block of Southfield Road, where police say three people tried to break into an apartment.
The two teenaged males who were in the apartment at the time told police they heard a knock at the door, and when they looked outside, they saw two men standing there. As they went to unlock the door, the two men allegedly tried to force their way in, punching one of the teens in the face.
While they were able to shut the door again and lock it, they told police one of the suspects pointed an assault rifle at him through the glass door on the back patio.
That's when they fled to the Southfield Albertson's store next to the apartments, where an off-duty Shreveport Police detective was able to capture one of the suspects chasing the victim.
That suspect, identified as 17-year-old Gunner Hendrix, of the 700 block of Woodvale Drive in Shreveport, was treated for minor injuries he received during the police chase, SPD Cpl. Marcus Hines says.
Authorities at the scene of the crime also recovered an assault rifle believed to have been used in the attempted break-in. Police say there is no connection between the recovered assault rifle and the AK-47 that was stolen last Sunday from a car in the parking lot of a Walmart at the Westport Shopping Center in West Shreveport.
During the course of the investigation, detectives were able to confirm the identities of the two other men believed to have participated in the botched robbery.
Hunter Johnson, 18, of the 100 block of Southfield Road in Shreveport along with 17-year-old Dillon Woodard of the 200 block of Roma Drive in Shreveport were apprehended by authorities at their respective residences after information gathered during the investigation linked them to the crime.
All three suspects in the robbery were charged with attempted armed robbery and booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
