At approximately 7:22 p.m. on Sunday, Shreveport police patrol officers were sent to a shooting near the intersection of Mabel Street and Greenwood Road. Upon arrival, officers located 22-year-old Eric Taylor in a vehicle there suffering from three gunshot wounds. Taylor was transported to a local hospital by the Shreveport Fire Department with what have been described as non-life-threatening injuries. Responding officers found a small quantity of suspected marijuana in the car that Taylor was in and arrested a passenger, identified as 18-year-old Donavan G. Fuller, for possession of marijuana. Fuller was booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
Investigators learned that Eric Taylor had apparently been involved in an ongoing dispute with some other men. Taylor was allegedly riding in a car somewhere on Hearne Avenue, when another vehicle pulled up and a known male suspect in that car began firing shots at him. Based on the victim’s statements and other evidence, detectives were able to identify 23-year-old Marvelous T. Brown as the suspect who shot Taylor. Brown was arrested just after midnight and booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count of attempted second degree murder.
Upon further investigation, detectives learned that the victim had warrants outstanding for his arrest charging him with one count each of aggravated assault, domestic abuse battery, simple battery, and entering and remaining after being forbidden. Taylor also had six traffic warrants outstanding for his arrest as well. Eric Taylor has been arrested and will be booked into the Shreveport City Jail as soon as he is released from the hospital.
