Two Shreveport Men Get in Violent Dispute Over Doing the Dishes
With the crime issues in Shreveport, very rarely does one make us do a double take.
The reasoning behind pulling a gun on someone can vary from case-to-case, but most of the shootings in our area don't seen to be for such petty reasons.
On April 30th, 2023, at 10:26 a.m., Shreveport Police officers responded to a shooting call in the 400 block of Melrose Street.
Arriving officers located a male suffering from a gunshot wound to the lowered body. Officers were able to determine that he was shot by a household member. Further investigation revealed that the victim was shot by Shamikel Jones (11-11-2004) after the victim reportedly asked Jones to assist with cleaning dishes in the home.
Jones was arrested and charged with one count of second-degree Aggravated battery. The victim is expected to recover. This investigation is on-going.
