Overnight Shooting In Haughton Leads To Murder Arrest
The normally sleepy, little town of Haughton was awakened early this morning to the sounds of gunfire.
Normally that sound would only come from hunters in nearby wooded areas, but this morning's shooting at approximately 12:30 am resonated from the Fox Chase Subdivision literally only yards away from the Haughton Elementary School.
Arklatexhomepage.com reported that at about 12:30 am this morning, September 6, Haughton Police officers were dispatched to the 600 block of Alex Way, and upon their arrival they discovered the victim of a shooting, 47-year-old Michael Allen Matthews in the garage area of the home.
As officers conducted interviews, they were told by witnesses that Matthews had argued with the suspected shooter, 22-year-old Christopher Agee, Jr., who allegedly shot him and fled the scene.
As multiple law enforcement agencies including the Bossier Sheriff's Department, Louisiana State Police and the Haughton Police Department, conducted a massive manhunt for the suspect, Haughton Police officers discovered Agee nearby in the 100 block of West McKinley Avenue and charged him with second-degree murder and obstruction of justice.
Subsequently he was booked into the Bossier Parish Maximum Security Jail.
