Arraignment pushed to July for former officer involved in shooting death of Alonzo Bagley
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The arraignment of the former Shreveport Police Department officer who pulled the trigger the night of Alonzo Bagley’s death has been rescheduled for a fourth time.
The arraignment was initially scheduled for April 3 but has been rescheduled multiple times. First May 1, May 18 and then June 1. Tyler’s attorney Dhu Thompson said the state requested more time to review the charges in April.
“He hasn’t been indicted for any charges and to our knowledge. The state hasn’t filed any bill of information. So right now, the only thing that has occurred to his detriment is the arrest itself,” Thompson said in April. “We remain optimistic that charges may not be brought in this case. But if charges are indeed brought, we will be prepared to defend Officer Tyler in court.”
Tyler was arrested and booked into Caddo Correctional Center back on Feb. 16 on one count of negligent homicide after a warrant was issued for his arrest; he bonded out the same day. He is accused of shooting and killing Bagley during a domestic call that happened at Villa Norté Apartments on Fullerton Street on Feb. 3.
Tyler resigned from the Shreveport Police Department on March 17.
