SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The Caddo Parish Coroner's office has identified the man slain early Thursday in an apparent home invasion in west-central Shreveport's Claiborne neighborhood.

The man who was killed was identified as 26-year-old Matthew Williams. The coroner's office used fingerprints taken by Shreveport Police Department crime scene investigators to identify him.

According to Shreveport police, Williams was one of two men who went to a residence in the 2400 block of Queens Highway just before 2 a.m., confronted the homeowner and got into a heated argument.

Williams was shot multiple times and died at the scene.  An autopsy has been ordered for him.

The homeowner, 43-year-old Terry Stewart, was shot once in a leg and was taken to University Health, police said.

Stewart has no charges filed against him at this time.

The third man, identified as 27-year-old Allen Martin, fled. Police arrested Martin, of the 6000 block of Lexington Avenue in Shreveport, and booked him on a charge of attempted second-degree murder at 5:15 p.m. the same day. His bond was been set at $250,000.
