Two men have been arrested by Shreveport police for unrelated shootings — one that happened today and another that happened a week ago.

18-year-old Jerry Jones has been booked into the Shreveport City Jail on a charge of illegal use of a weapon for a shooting that happened around 1 o’clock this afternoon in the 2900 block of Fulton.  Initially, the 17-year-old victim told police that he and Jones had been walking down the street when two other guys attempted to rob them and then shot the victim.  However, after further investigation, detectives determined that Jones and the victim were playing with a gun when it discharged.  The bullet passed through his hand and struck him in the chest.  Detectives have not yet determined whether any charges will be filed against the victim.

Police have also arrested 24-year-old Raphael Clark, booking him into the Shreveport City Jail on a warrant charging him with attempted second-degree murder.  Clark had been wanted for the September 14th shooting of 20-year-old Kortez Hobley following an altercation between the two at a convenience store at West 70th and Linwood.  Detectives had circulated information about Clark after the warrant was issued yesterday and a tip led them to a house in the 2900 block of West Maple Street where they found Clark hiding inside this afternoon.  He surrendered and was taken into custody without incident.
