SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
The father of a Shreveport man charged in connection with a deadly shooting last Friday night in west Shreveport has now also been arrested in connection with the case. 

34-year-old Derrick Clark is charged with being an accessory after the fact to second degree murder in the death of 30-year-old Tyrone Youngblood. Youngblood died on Friday, April 11, after he was shot multiple times in the 3700 block of Valley View Drive. 

Clark's son, 18-year-old Derrick Thomas, 18, has already been arrested for his role in the shooting and has since been charged with second degree murder. Thomas remains jailed at the Caddo Correctional Center. 

Thomas was arrested Wednesday morning at a home in the 700 block of Bernice Circle in Shreveport, after police say information they collected suggested Clark may have participated in the destruction of evidence connected to the murder of Youngblood.

Following his arrest, Clark was booked into the Shreveport City Jail. 

Police say the investigation into the murder is still underway.
