SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Witnesses say two men were in a vehicle when someone walked up and began firing a gun.

One man died and another was wounded in the attack in Shreveport's Sunset Acres neighborhood.

Fifteen days later, a Shreveport man is accused of being the gunman that evening.

The shootings occurred about 7:37 p.m. Oct. 29 in a driveway in the 2900 block of Hillcrest Avenue.

That's between Quilen and West Canal boulevards.

It is where police found two men suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Tony Williams, 30, was pronounced dead at the scene.

And 26-year-old Jaeric Carey was taken to University Health in Shreveport for treatment of serious wounds.

Investigators say the two were sitting in a vehicle that was found riddled with bullets.

A neighboring house also had been hit by gunfire.

Investigators also reported having recovered multiple shell casings.

Now 28-year-old Dennis Lee Richardson, of Shreveport, stands accused of killing Williams and wounding Carey.

Police arrested Richardson at his home in the 2600 block of Silver Pine Boulevard at 6:15 a.m. Tuesday and seized several pounds of marijuana, hundreds of prescription pills, cash and an assault-style rifle from the residence.

He was booked him into Shreveport City Jail at 12:52 p.m. the same day on two counts of possession of a Schedule II Controlled Dangerous Substance (CDS) with intent to distribute and one count each of second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, possession of a Schedule I CDS with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm with a CDS.
