Shreveport, La — A Shreveport man has been arrested in connection with a shooting and attempted robbery that happened last month in Cherokee Park.
On Tuesday, at 6 p.m., officers responded to an apartment complex on the 2900 block of Peach Street to reports of a wanted suspect, 19-year-old Nicholas Randle, hiding out there.
Randle, of Shreveport, was wanted for an alleged shooting and attempted robbery that took place back on September 27.
During the alleged incident, Deangelo Davenport, 27, of Shreveport, sustained a minor gunshot wound to the wrist after Randle allegedly shot him while trying to rob him and a friend, Bryan Spells, 21, of Shreveport, who was present with Davenport during the ordeal.
Upon officer’s arrival at the Peach Street address, authorities began a search for Randle and caught him loitering near the apartment’s laundry facility. He surrendered to police and was taken into custody without incident.
Randle was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on two counts of attempted armed robbery and two counts of attempted first degree homicide.
