Shreveport Police detectives have secured an arrest warrant for a suspect accused of fatally shooting a man near north Shreveport on Tuesday.

Just before 10:00 p.m. on May 7, Shreveport Police officers responded to the Cooper Road Plaza Apartments located in the 2900 block of Peach Street relative to a man who had been shot numerous times.
