SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
2 arrests have been made in connection with a shooting earlier this month in Shreveport's Cherokee Park neighborhood that left a teen injured.
Officers were called to the 300 block of Mayfair Drive just after 7:30 p.m. on September 3 for a report of a shooting. They arrived to find a 16-year-old male that had been shot once in the upper body. The teen was taken to LSU Hospital with serious injuries, but police say he is expected to survive.
Investigators believe the teen was shot while at Mamie Hicks Park, located just blocks away from where he was found. It is believed the teen ran from the park after being struck and later collapsed in the 300 block of Mayfair Drive.
Police say their preliminary information suggests an exchange of gunfire erupted following a dispute of unknown nature between two groups of male subjects gathered at the park.
As a result of their investigation, Shreveport Police have arrested 25-year old-Jeremy Madison and 17-year-old Jay'veon Arthur. Madison is now charged with attempted first degree murder. Arthur is charged with illegal use of a weapon for his alleged role in the incident.
Both men were booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
