SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The Shreveport man accused of fatally shooting a Shreveport police officer in August pleaded not guilty Monday morning to a charge of first degree murder. 

Grover Cannon, 27, entered the plea at an arraignment in Caddo district court Monday morning. 

Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty for Cannon if convicted. 

A Caddo Parish grand jury returned the indictment against on October 15. 

Cannon was captured after a citywide manhunt following the murder of officer Thomas LaValley on August 5. LaValley was shot while responding to a suspicious persons call inside a Queensborough home when, according to court testimony, Cannon opened fire.

Of the 15 shots fired, one came from a 9 mm handgun. The rest came from a .40 caliber handgun. LaValley was shot 6 times. 

LaValley's service weapon, Glock 22 .40 caliber handgun, has not been recovered. The reward for its recovery has been raised to $5,000.

Cannon was already wanted on a charge of attempted second degree murder from a shooting in mid-July. 

Cannon remains held without bond for the first degree murder charge. His bond for second degree murder charge is $150,000. He was also charged with possession of a firearm. His bond for that charge is set at $100,000.

He is due back in court on all of those charges on December 21.
