SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A man wanted for his alleged role in a shooting at a local hotel is now in police custody.

On July 19, Shreveport police were called to the Baymont Inn in the 5100 block of Monkhouse Drive on reports of an armed robbery, during which, an unarmed security officer was shot.

During the crime, police say 32-year-old Dennis Ray Davis, Jr., entered the business and was confronted by the security officer. That's when Davis reportedly shot the officer in the leg.

The officer was taken to an area hospital with what were described as non-life threatening injuries.

Davis reportedly surrendered to authorities at the Caddo Correctional Center Wednesday morning. He was booked on charges of attempted first degree murder and armed robbery.

Bond in the matter is set at $500,000.

Davis has been the focal point of a KSLA Investigation for more than 3 years. Since 2013, we've reported on numerous of local homeowners who say Davis took advantage of them after being hired for various projects, from cement work to building fences.
