[UPDATE] Identities Released of Man & Woman Found Shot to Death in Shreveport’s Highland Neighborhood

[UPDATE]  Police have released the identities of the man and woman shot to death yesterday morning on Columbia Street. They are 57-year-old Stephen Bryant and 49-year-old Madonna Dean Wachter. No word on any motive yet, but detectives continue to investigate. If you have any information that can help, call police or Shreveport-Caddo Crime Stoppers at 673-7373.

[ORIGINAL STORY]  The bodies of two people have been found in a Highland-area home. Shreveport Police Corporal Marcus Hines tells KEEL News that just after 10 this morning, police arrived in the 200 block of Columbia Street to find two adults — one male, one female — dead inside a home there.  Each suffered a gunshot wound.

Hines says the two appear to be in their late 40’s or early 50’s, but no names have been released yet. He says that may come later this afternoon, after family members are notified. Violent Crimes Detectives are investigating this as a homicide.

Right now, there are no known reports of any shots fired in the area this morning.
