A Shreveport man accused of shooting a teenager was arrested by U.S. Marshals Thursday.

Shreveport police say on February 7th, they responded to a shooting in the 5200 block of Kent Street. Officers found a 14-year-old boy suffering from a gunshot to his leg. After an investigation, detectives determined that 23-year-old LaCalvin Williams was a suspect in the shooting.

Police issued a warrant for Williams charging him with illegal use of a weapon. On February 15th, Williams went on the run after evading officers who attempted to arrest him.

U.S. Marshals were able to catch up to Williams, who was hiding out in Plain Dealing, Louisiana, and arrest him.

Williams was later taken to the Bossier Maximum Security Jail. His bond is set at 50,000.
