Shreveport Man Arrested For Deadly Shooting
A suspect has been arrested for a deadly shooting that left one man dead and another injured.
The evening of January 19, 2021, Shreveport Police responded to the 3000 block of Lindholm Street relative to a shooting. Officers located two men suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds. The victims, identified as Nicholas Toms and Jacob Decamp, were transported to Ochsner LSU Medical Health. Decamp is in stable condition and Toms later died from his injuries.
Violent Crimes and Crime Scene Investigators responded to this location and began their investigation. The preliminary investigation suggested that the shooting occurred following an altercation over an illegal “gun deal”.
Following a nearly two week investigation, Violent Crimes Investigators were able to identify 19 year old Dontreal York as a suspect in this shooting. An arrest warrant was procured for Dontreal York charging him with one count of Second Degree Murder and one count of Attempted First Degree Murder.
This weekend, Detectives with the assistance of the US Marshals Task Force and Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office were able to locate York and take him into custody in Bossier Parish. Following an interview with detectives, York was booked into the Shreveport City Jail. This is still an on-going investigation.
