SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Bond has been set at $1.1 million for a Louisiana murder suspect.
Tre’veon Jackson is being held in Caddo Correctional Center. The 19-year-old Shreveport man was booked into the lockup at 1:33 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 9, online records show.
He is charged with two counts each of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder. In addition, Jackson was also wanted by authorities in northeast Louisiana after he and two others escaped a juvenile detention center.

The Shreveport man was killed about 2:24 a.m. Aug. 14 in the parking lot of a motel in the 5100 block of Westwood Park Drive.
Two days later, police detectives obtained a warrant for Jackson’s arrest on a charge of second-degree murder.
He was apprehended Wednesday, Sept. 8 in the 1800 block of North Market Street by members of a U.S. Marshals Service violent offenders task force and Shreveport Police Department’s warrants unit, according to SPD news releases.
Jackson was booked into Shreveport City Jail after being interviewed by investigators.
Online records show he was arrested at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, booked into Shreveport City Jail at 3:47 p.m. the same day then transferred to Caddo Correctional early Thursday morning.
Jackson also is one of four people whom investigators have arrested in connection with gunfire Aug. 12 in the 600 block of West 64th Street that claimed a man’s life and wounded another man and a male juvenile, SPD also announced Thursday.
