2 separate shootings leave woman, teen girl dead on Easter Sunday; suspect arrested in teen’s death
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — One man has now been arrested after gunfire claimed two lives on Easter Sunday in Shreveport.
A teenage girl died after being shot once in her right cheek.
That shooting happened at 1:17 p.m. Sunday, April 17 on E Gregg Street near Alexander Avenue, Caddo 911 dispatch records show.
The juvenile and a male occupant of the residence were inside the home when the shooting occurred.
“The male was displaying a firearm and the one shot was fired,” the major incident report states.
Witnesses outside rushed inside and called 911. The teenager was taken to Ochsner LSU Health, the Shreveport hospital where she was pronounced deceased, the report adds.
Investigators with the Shreveport Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit were able to find the weapon used in the shooting under a house and detained Treylin Dillard, 19, after witnesses reportedly told officers he was responsible for the shooting. Police say Dillard and the teen had been involved in a romantic relationship for about a year. On the day she was shot, the two had engaged in an argument, during which Dillard reportedly pulled out a gun and shot her at least once in the upper body.
Dillard is charged with second-degree murder. No bond has been set. He was booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
Earlier Sunday in a separate incident, the Caddo Parish Coroner’s Office released the identity of the woman who died following a shooting that morning in west Shreveport.
Zynashaia L. Fielding, 23, of Arcadia, was found shot dead in her car which was found near the intersection of Corbitt Street and Mansfield Road. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers got the call just before 1 a.m. April 17 regarding a vehicle that crashed at the intersection.
Police have no suspect at this time.
They do note that long guns were used and that they are looking for a white, four-door vehicle.
