Mugshots of men who police in a car chase, released
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Caddo sheriff’s deputies performed a traffic stop on West 70th Street that evolved into a car chase and an hour long search.
Officials say they tried to stop a white BMW about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5 for alleged improper display of a license plate and a window tint violation. The driver, later identified as 24-year-old Shreveport resident Kymmton K. Solomon, then led deputies on a high-speed chase down West 70th Street and Walker Road.
The BMW hit a culvert but kept going until it reached Walker Road at Mackey Lane. Solomon and the passenger, 21-year-old Cedarrick Brooks, got out of the car and fled.
Brooks ran to a nearby store, where he was arrested. Solomon ran into the woods.
CPSO deputies, Shreveport police and Louisiana State Police troopers, along with CPSO and SPD K-9s combed the woods for nearly an hour in search of Solomon. He later was found behind a St. Helens Drive residence and arrested.
Officials on the scene told KSLA that one of the men jumped onto a civilian’s car that had a woman and children inside. Police then tazed him and he fell off of the car before he was placed under arrest.
Two long guns with high-capacity magazines were seized from the vehicle.
The Sheriff’s Office said both suspects would be booked into Caddo Correctional Center, with Solomon facing a charge of accessory after the fact, aggravated flight from an officer, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and traffic warrants through SPD. Brooks is being charged with flight from an officer, illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana, distribution of drugs, and attempted second-degree murder warrants through SPD.
Meantime, Shreveport City Jail records show that Solomon was arrested by Shreveport police at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday and booked into the municipal lockup at 8:13 p.m. the same day on a charge of accessory after the fact to attempted second-degree murder. Queries for further details from Shreveport police were unanswered.
