Arrest Made And Suspect Sought For Shreveport Homicide
One arrest has been made, and police are searching for a second suspect in connection with the murder of 29-year-old Michael Coleman at a west Shreveport apartment complex.
On August 26, 2020 just before 9:30 p.m., Shreveport Police officers responded to the 700 block of West 68th Street at the Woodlawn Terrace Apartments on reports of a shooting. Arriving officers located Coleman and the Shreveport Fire Department transported him to Ochsner LSU Health Hospital where he later died.
Investigators with Crime Scene and Homicide Units responded to the scene, took photos, and seized articles of evidence from the scene. Investigators attempted to interview witnesses but were unable to locate any. Detectives were able to use evidence collected from the scene to identify two individuals they believe responsible for the murder. On August 30, 2020, they procured arrest warrants for 20-year-old Albert Jones Jr., of the 3400 block of Clarke Street, and 18-year-old Quinterrius Brown, of the 900 block of North Lakewood Drive, charging both with one count each of Second Degree Murder. Bond was set at $500,000.00 each. Jones Jr. was taken into custody by SPD Homicide investigators the day the warrant issued and following interviews, he was booked into the Shreveport City jail.
Brown is still on the run. Detectives are asking the public’s help to locate him. Those with information as to his whereabouts are asked to call Shreveport Police at 318-673-7300 #3 or Shreveport Caddo Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373 or via their app, P3Tips.
