BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - Bossier police have made an arrest in connection to the fatal shooting that occurred on I-20 near the Red River Bridge.

Albert Jo Lopez, 57, was arrested for the shooting death of Chase Brownfield.

On Thursday, Aug. 18, officers with the Shreveport Police Department were called to a single-vehicle accident on the side of the Red River overpass. Officers found Brownfield in the driver’s seat of a black 2016 Jeep Liberty with gunshot wounds to the head. He was taken to Ochsner LSU Health and was later pronounced dead.

Bossier police began an investigation and determined that Brownfield had recently been involved in a domestic dispute that may have led to the shooting. Detectives say they believe he was shot from another vehicle on I-20.

Lopez was booked into the Bossier City Jail with one count of first-degree murder and one count of illegal use of weapons. His bond is set at $515,000.

The incident remains under investigation.
