SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A Caddo grand jury says there is enough evidence for a Shreveport man to go to trial over a slaying in the city's Cedar Grove neighborhood.

The panel Thursday indicted 22-year-old Darell Lamont Bell, of the 2700 block of Malcolm Street, on a charge of second-degree murder.

Bell is accused of fatally shooting 19-year-old Kendarrius Henderson.

Henderson was one of two people shot early the morning of Feb. 8 as they were sitting in a car in front of a house in the 200 block of North Emerald Loop.

Indications are that a grey Ford F-150 extended cab pickup made multiple passes down the road then someone in the truck riddled the car with bullets, authorities said.

Also wounded was 21-year-old Jelantis Chatman.

Bell remains in Caddo Correctional Center, where he was booked Feb. 15 on one count each of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.
