Arrest made in connection to body found in Lake Bistineau
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Shreveport police have arrested 24-year-old Reginald Sircoraldewron Grant, of Shreveport, on one count of second-degree murder and one count of possession of a firearm in connection with the death of Borris Williams, 24.
Police responded to reports of a body being found in Lake Bistineau on Sunday, Oct. 10. He had multiple gunshot wounds and later was identified as Williams.
Detectives began questioning witnesses around the 3000 block of Lufkin Street in Shreveport after determining it to be the scene of the crime. Detectives identified Grant as the suspect in Williams’ death. Police say the two men were living together at a home on Lufkin Street.
Online records show that Grant was booked into Shreveport City Jail at 12:12 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12 then transferred to Caddo Correctional Center, where he was booked at 7:31 p.m. the same day.
He is charged with one count each of second-degree murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm. The latter charge arises from the fact that officers reportedly found a 5.56mm NATO mountain rifle in Grant’s residence, according to the booking record narrative.
Grant’s bonds have been set at $350,000 on the murder charge and $75,000 on the firearms charge.
No motive for the alleged murder has been given at this time.
