SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — The Shreveport Police Department has released surveillance video in hopes that someone will come forward with information regarding a fatal shooting in 2018.

The shooting took place just before 10 p.m. July 29, 2018. Justin Kemp and an acquaintance were parked in a parking lot in the 4900 block of Jewella Avenue. Police believe the pair were there for a drug deal.

Multiple shots were fired at the rear of the vehicle, hitting Kemp multiple times. The passenger was hit once.

Kemp died three months later from the injuries he sustained in the shooting.

“Someone knows who killed Justin Kemp,” reads a Facebook post by SPD. “We are asking those with that information to come forward and help Justin Kemp’s two children and those that loved him get the closure they deserve for the loss of their loved one.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Shreveport police at (318) 673-7300. Or contact Caddo-Shreveport Crime Stoppers by calling (318) 673-7373, visiting the group’s website, or the P3 Tips app to submit information anonymously.
