Shreveport Man Arrested in Shooting Death of 16 Year-Old Girl
Shreveport Police Department has charged a man in connection with the shooting death of a 16-year-old female Easter Sunday (4/17/22) afternoon.
Just after 1:15 p.m., Shreveport Police patrol officers responded to the 100 block of East Gregg Street on reports of a shooting. Officers located a female inside of the residence suffering from at least one gunshot wound to the upper body. She was transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced deceased.
Patrol officers were able to locate the murder weapon underneath the residence and detained 19 year-old Treylin Dillard after witnesses advised officers that he was responsible for the shooting.
Investigators spoke with witnesses and canvassed the neighborhood for video. They also obtained a search warrant for the residence. CSIU executed the search warrant and collected items of evidence from within the home.
Detectives learned through interviews with witnesses and other evidence that Dillard and the female had been involved in a romantic relationship for approximately one year. Today they engaged in an argument and during the argument Dillard produced a firearm and shot the female at least once in the upper body.
Detectives procured a warrant for Dillard charging him with one count of Second- Degree Murder. No bond was set. Following interviews with investigators, Dillard was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on his charges.
