Per a news release from Corporal Marcus Hines of the Shreveport Police Department:

Shreveport Police detectives have arrested a suspect now charged in a drive-by shooting which claimed the life of a Shreveport man Wednesday evening.

Shortly after 7:00 p.m., on June 12, 2019, Shreveport Police patrol officers were called to the 3600 block of Jackson Street relative to a shooting.  As officers arrived at the scene, it was learned a male victim was suffering multiple gunshots to the upper body.  The man, identified as 34 year old Derek White, died following his transport to Ochsner LSU Health hospital.

Based on preliminary information gathered at the scene of the crime, it was learned White was standing outside a residence when a blue sedan drove past the home and firing multiple shots from the vehicle.  The suspect vehicle fled the scene of the crime following the shooting.  Since the incident, investigators have worked tirelessly in search of the person responsible for the crime.  Those efforts came to fruition on June 13, 2019, with the arrest of 29 year old Cadarius D. Brantley.  Following his arrest, Brantley was transported to the Shreveport Police Department for interviews with investigators. Brantley now faces charges of illegal carrying of a weapon, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possession of schedule one narcotics with intent to distribute and second degree murder.
