SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Loud explosions that rocked a Shreveport apartment complex Sunday evening led to the arrest of two men, who now face felony charges.
Shreveport Fire investigators say they and Shreveport Police got a call to the Colony Square Apartments in the 3000 block of Colquitt Road about 5 pm Sunday. Once there, investigators say they found pieces of a homemade bomb. The debris included PVC piping, electrical tape, and a pencil used to guide the missile. Investigators found some of the pieces 240 feet away from the detonation point.
No injuries were reported.
Twenty-one-year-old Justin Baugh and 22-year-old Matthew Williams, both of Shreveport, were found a short time later at the intersection of Mansfield Road and Summer Grove. According to investigators, the men said they did not know what they did was illegal.
Baugh and Williams now face felony charges of making and possessing a bomb, which carries a sentence of up to 20 years in jail and a $10,000 fine. As of Monday night both men were still in the Caddo Correctional Center.
