SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A suspect has been arrested in the deadly shooting of a Shreveport man in the Lakeside neighborhood.

According to the Shreveport City Jail booking page, 21-year-old Raco Allen was arrested just before 9:45 p.m. Tuesday. Allen was wanted by police in connection to the murder of 25-year-old Jacoby Taylor.

Police say officers responded to a reported shooting in the 2900 block of Poland Street just after 10 p.m. Saturday, August 17th. When they arrived, they were met by members of the Shreveport Fire Department, who confirmed that Jacoby had died of a gunshot wound to the upper body.

Detectives say Allen was reportedly seen firing a number of shots from a vehicle nearby into the crowd standing in the area at the time, and it is believed that was when Jacoby was struck and killed. They say Allen then ran from the vehicle on foot. Police searched the area, but were unable to find Allen that night.

Allen was booked into the Shreveport City Jail and charged with second degree murder.
