Queensborough Shoot-out Results in Three Arrests
Shreveport police were called out to the intersection of Grove and Jackson just before 7:15 last night to a report of shots fired there. Moments later, they learned there was a man in the 3500 block of Milton Street who had been shot...and that's where they found 32-year-old Cadarius Brantley suffering from at least three gunshot wounds to the legs. He was taken to LSU Hospital with what were initially believed to be life-threatening wounds. But medical personnel say he is expected to survive.
Investigators have found out that Brantley and 23-year-old Ashley Williams got into an argument, and he threatened her with a gun. So she left, got her boyfriend -- 26-year-old Quincy Jackson -- and gave him her gun...and the two went searching for Brantley. When he saw their car, he pulled his gun and started shooting at them. Jackson got out of his car and returned fire.
After hours spent sorting out all the details, investigators have charged Brantley with one count of illegal use of a weapon, Jackson with one count of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, and Williams with one count of illegally supplying a convicted felon with a firearm. Williams and Jackson were booked into the Shreveport City Jail...and Brantley will be, too, once he's released from the hospital.
