SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Two months after a father of eight was gunned down on his 56th birthday, police think they have the gunman who killed him in custody.

Patrol officers spotted and arrested 25-year-old Zarrien T. Alexander, of the 7200 block of Bernstein Avenue, about 10 p.m. Saturday.

Thirty-three minutes later, he was booked into Shreveport City Jail on a charge of second-degree murder.

"I'm glad he was caught, glad. Brings closure to the family," said Jamal Taylor who is the victim's daughter's fiance.

Alexander is accused of shooting Joseph "Lewis" Hubbard in his face, side and an arm about 3 a.m. July 23 at a residence in the 600 block of West 73rd Street.
