Caddo Parish Deputies Respond to Early Morning Shootout
Caddo Parish Deputies have arrested 4 juveniles following a shootout at a North Caddo parish apartment complex. Deputies recieved a "shots fired" call just after 4:30A Tuesday morning in the 1600 block of North Forty Loop.
After the initial investigation, deputies determined a resident of the Grand Oaks Apartment complex was standing outside near his car when an unknown male approached him and tried to rob him. The two exchanged gunfire, then both men ran into a wooded area nearby.
During the investigation, and subsequent search for the suspects, there were up to 20 deputies involved in the search. Deputies caught the first suspect soon after responding. The sheriff's department also deployed K9 Nero and handler Deputy Mendolia, who tracked the second, and then a third suspect. Deputies then located a fourth suspect later near the apartment complex.
During their investigation the Sheriff's department recovered 4 guns and 2 stolen vehicles. All 4 teenage suspects are believed to be responsible for several vehicle burglaries that occured in Blanchard and north Shreveport earlier Tuesday morning.
The suspects are in custody and are being questioned by Caddo detectives. No further information is available at this time.
