[UPDATE]  The resident whose apartment was broken into in the 4000 block of Golf Links Boulevard is identified as 20-year-old Tyrell Jackson. He suffered a grazing gunshot wound to the head. He's expected to be O.K.

Police say 25-year-old Sirdarren Jackson and 19-year-old Lonnie Johnson entered the apartment and tried to rob the occupands. One of the men exchanged gunfire with the resident, and both suspects were shot. Sirdarren Jackson was pronounced dead at the scene. Johnson continues to recover at University Health. He'll face charges once he's released from the hospital.


[ORIGINAL STORY]  Four young men have now been charged with a home invasion reported earlier this week in west Shreveport, and one of them has also been connected to another home invasion that left a woman wounded.

The first incident happened at a home in the 4000 block of Golf Links Boulevard. There was an exchange of gunfire between the homeowner and 19-year-old Lonnie Johnson, who was wounded. He was taken to University Health, where he's still being treated, and was charged with one count each of attempted armed robbery and attempted first-degree murder.

During their investigation, detectives also arrested 24-year-old Demarcus Morris, 22-year-old Eric Anderson and 25-year-old Christopher Williams. The Shreveport men have all been booked into the Shreveport City Jail for accessory after the fact to attempted armed robbery.

Investigators got a search warrant for a home on Midway Avenue, where they gathered enough evidence to link Johnson to another home invasion in the 7200 block of Bernstein Avenue. That incident left 28-year-old Kamesia Martin with two gunshot wounds. She's recovering at a local hospital.

Detectives believe the two residences were specifically targeted by the suspects, and were not random acts. Johnson may face other charges as the investigation continues. Anyone with additional information on these crimes is urged to call Shreveport-Caddo Crime Stoppers at 673-7373.

(NOTE: No mug shot for Johnson will be available until he's released from the hospital and booked into the Shreveport City Jail.)
