SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Police have arrested the man they suspect shot at two Shreveport officers.

Isaiah J. "Zay" Martin, 20, of the 3000 block of Bibb Street in Shreveport, has been taken to a Shreveport hospital for treatment of what authorities believe to be gunshot wound consistent with the shooting June 30, police Cpl. Marcus Hines said.

Authorities found Martin hiding out at Centrum Apartments in the 2700 block of Waggoner Avenue in Shreveport.

He was caught just after 2 p.m. Thursday while trying to flee through a window on an upstairs apartment.

Also arrested Thursday was 19-year-old Kenneth Mitchell, of the 2700 block of Waggoner Avenue. He is charged with one count of accessory after the fact to attempted first-degree murder.

Their arrests Thursday came a day after authorities announced that the U.S. Marshals Service was offering a reward of up to $5,000 and Shreveport Crime Stoppers was providing $1,000 for information leading to Martin's arrest.  

"Martin has yet to receive medical attention for his injuries and is likely in hiding in the Shreveport area," says the statement the U.S. Marshals Service released Wednesday.

It also warns that "anyone found to be aiding Martin will be criminally charged."

Authorities had a warrant to arrest Martin on a charge of attempted first-degree murder of a police officer.

The gunfire erupted about 4 p.m. June 30 when an officer stopped a silver sedan in the 4300 block of Wallace Avenue.

Another officer arrived a short time later.

And when one of the officers approached the passenger side of the vehicle, Martin allegedly opened the door and immediately began firing at the officers. 

The officers returned fire as he ran away.

Authorities had said they thought Martin had been wounded in the gunfire.
