Police Release Name of Thanksgiving Day Shooting Victim
We now know who the man was who was shot to death in west Shreveport early Thanksgiving morning. Shreveport police detectives say 25-year-old Edward Williams apparently kicked in the door of a residence in the 9000 block of Walker Road, where his ex-girlfriend lives with her current boyfriend and two small children. Investigators believe Williams aggressively approached the woman’s boyfriend, who pulled a handgun and fired several shots, hitting Williams once. Detectives have conducted interviews with witnesses and have not filed any charges against the boyfriend so far. Once their investigation is complete, they’ll turn the information over to the Caddo parish District Attorney’s Office for review.
