Citizens Speak Out After Four People Arrested

  • Julia LeFort

Reporter Timmy Lane was on the scene May 12th, 2019 as 50 police units responded to the scene of a fight. At around 4:45 PM, police showed up at the 2500 block on DeVaughn street in the Morningside neighborhood in Shreveport. Residents of the block viewing the scene got caught up in the trouble when one was accused of pushing an officer to the ground, while resident witnesses claim the officer fell. One residential family attempted to explain to the police it was the house across the street involved in the reported fight. All of the Mother’s Day chaos resulted in four arrests and some outspoken citizens expressed to Lane their frustration with the disruption during their Mother’s Day afternoon. One neighbor said the fight had been ongoing since 10 AM, and calling the police seemed like the smartest course of action. Instead, Shreveport Police pulled up to what neighbors claimed to be the wrong house, and the ordeal ended in four arrests, one man suffering from a dog bite from a Shreveport Police K-9, and an elderly man being transported to the hospital after having trouble breathing. RSHV News 1 is currently waiting for an update from the Shreveport Police on the status of those arrested.
