5 juveniles arrested after allegedly wrecking carjacked vehicle into another vehicle
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - A stolen vehicle with five juveniles inside crashed into another vehicle while fleeing from police. After the wreck, they all tried to run away, but were captured by SPD.
On Jan. 14 just before 6:30 p.m., Shreveport Police Department (SPD) patrol officers were assigned to the Queensborough neighborhood to try to stop a vehicle that had been carjacked Jan. 13.
When officers tried the stop the vehicle, the driver immediately drove off and led patrol officers on a chase that ended when the carjacked vehicle crashed into a Ford Mustang at the intersection of Jewella and Hollywood avenues.
Five juveniles got out of the car and ran away, but all of them were captured before they could get out of sight of SPD.
The two people in the Mustang were taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
While searching the stolen vehicle, officers discovered five weapons, including three handguns (one was stolen with the vehicle) and two AR rifles (one was stolen in November). All of the weapons were loaded.
The juveniles were between 14 and 17-years-old. All were taken to local hospitals to be treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, then they were booked into the Caddo Parish Juvenile Detention Center.
Each of the juveniles was charged with one count of illegal possession of a stolen vehicle and juveniles in possession of handguns. The driver also was charged with hit-and-run and negligent injury.
