SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A man wanted for attempted murder is behind bars after being arrested in west Shreveport Friday morning.

Multiple agencies worked together to find and arrest 22-year-old Donovan Williams just before 1 a.m. at the Huntington Park Shopping Center in the 6700 block of Pines Road.

Officers from the Shreveport Police Department, Bossier City Police Department, Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office and the United States Marshal's Fugitive Task Force searched for Williams Thursday after he managed to elude authorities near Pines Road Road at West 70th Street that morning.

Large scale search operations were suspended shortly after 5:30 p.m., but authorities maintained a presence in the surrounding areas because they thought Williams was still around.

Police say Williams was corralled after he was spotted in a car near Financial Plaza Boulevard. He reportedly got out of the car and ran before police caught and arrested in.

Williams was wanted out of Ouachita Parish on 2 counts of attempted murder. He is being held at Caddo Correctional Center.

Police say Williams is also believed to be connected to multiple armed robberies of Shreveport businesses.
