Sander will be arraigned in Caddo District Court on July 15.

From March 28
  The suspect in Thursday night's shooting at a Shreveport apartment complex has turned himself in.
  Shreveport Police say Cappy Sanders, 18, turned himself in Friday morning.
  Sanders was wanted for second degree murder in the shooting death of Deandre Taylor, 24.
  A fight between two girls spiralled out of control, leading to a shooting that killed one man, and injured a 10-year old bystander, according to Shreveport Police.  It all happened at an apartment complex amidst a mob of 500-people, making it the city's 7th homicide of the year.
The gathered crowd lingered after the shooting had stopped at the Stone Vista Apartments, at East Jordan and Easy Streets in Shreveport.
  Aprille Indelicato, a witness and apartment resident gasped, "hoo, it was wild!  I was like uhhhh.  I was just bringing my garbage out, you know."
  Luckily, Indelicato managed to avoid the gunfire which all began after a fight between two girls.  Kacee Hargrave, Shreveport Police Spokeswoman, elaborated, "somehow the brother of one and the boyfriend of the other got involved.  Guns were produced."
  But, Indelicato said the shooter had some help before pulling the trigger.  She continued, "yeah, and then there was a lady in a maroon car.  They said she was the one who had the gun.  And she was the one who gave the kid the gun.  As soon as she walked into the crowd, she walked away, he started shooting."
  Medics rushed a Taylor to LSU Hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest, where doctors later pronounced him dead.  KSLA News 12 is told medics transported a distraught relative to the hospital, as well.  A stray bullet also struck a 10-year old boy, with a bullet wound to the thigh.
  Police later found the gun dropped nearby.  Apartment residents told us they desperately need more police protection and police confirm the complex is a common spot for everything from domestic disputes to drug activity.  "God knows we need it.  You got ninety something and 40-year old people standing here in these buildings.  We got elderly people staying here.  How can you live in fear?" exclaimed apartment resident Jeanette Burns.
