Tragedy in Caddo Heights: Video captures terror of shooting that killed woman, wounded police officer
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Facebook Live video shared with KSLA News 12 appears to show a woman being forced to livestream during a standoff Thursday morning in Shreveport.
That woman, apparently held against her will, was shot during the encounter about 11 a.m. at a home in the city's Caddo Heights neighborhood and later died.
A Shreveport police officer who also was wounded in the shooting has been released from the hospital.
And the alleged gunman now is being held in Caddo Correctional Center.
Johnathan Tremaine Robinson, 36, of the 1400 block of Arlington Avenue in Shreveport, had to be moved after flooding his City Jail cell by breaking a water pipe.
A dozen or so officers responded to a call for assistance when Robinson refused to leave his cell about 3:44 p.m. Thursday.
Police Cpl. Marcus Hines said he was removed peacefully.
Charges pending against Robinson are one count each of second-degree murder and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, City Jail booking records show.
Shreveport Police Chief Alan Crump will hold a news conference Friday morning to discuss new details about Robinson's arrest.
The conference will be held at 11:30 a.m. at the Shreveport Police Department's Administration building.
KSLA News 12 will stream the news conference live on our app.
