Two Men Jailed in Queens Highway Shooting
Two Shreveport men face charges in connection with an early May shooting that left a local man wounded.
The shooting happened May 8 at a convenience store in the 2200 block of Queens Highway. The victim, 21-year-old Lakordo Jamerson, told police he and several friends were at the store, when a suspect approached them and accused them of stealing from him.
The suspect and his friends left the store and were later seen parked in front of the home where Jamerson and his friends had gone after leaving the store. Jamerson and his friends saw a man fire several shots from his vehicle. Two of the rounds struck Jamerson in the arm and lower back.
Following an investigation, detectives linked Christopher Weston and 25-year-old Jacorey Smith to the crime. They were taken into custody following a June 7 traffic stop in the 1900 block of Midway Avenue.
Detectives searched Smith's home in the 2500 block of Desoto Street, and found a semi-automatic rifle and handgun, believed to have been used in the crime. It's believed Weston and the guns may be linked to other shootings in the area.
Weston is charged with one count of attempted second degree murder and one of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Smith is also charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Both men have been booked into the Shreveport City Jail on a combined bond of $600,000.
The shooting remains under investigation.
