Two People Stabbed, One in Jail

SPD-police_carTwo victims are nursing stab wounds this morning while their alleged attacker stands accused of attempted murder following a dispute at a home in west Shreveport last night.                                          

At approximately 6:40 p.m. on April 11, 2012, Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to a reported stabbing at a house in the 3600 block of Michigan Boulevard. Upon arrival, officers found 22 year old Yashika Swanson and 45 year old Danzeria Farris, Sr. both of whom were suffering from multiple lacerations to the face, head and arms. Swanson and Farris, Sr. were transported to LSUHSC by the Shreveport Fire Department with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries. Responding patrolmen discovered there was apparently some sort of dispute in the home there on Michigan Boulevard during which 23 year old Danzeria Farris, Jr. armed himself with a knife and accosted the two victims. During the fray, another person in the residence armed themselves with a knife and stabbed Farris Jr. in the back which apparently ended the confrontation.

 

Authorities located Farris, Jr. at the scene of the crime and took him into custody only after being forced to deploy a department issued Taser when the suspect refused to comply with their lawful directives and made threatening statements toward them. Farris, Jr., of the 3600 block of Michigan Boulevard in Shreveport, was transported to LSUHSC by the Shreveport Fire Department for treatment of a non-life threatening stab wound and has been charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder. His mugshot is not immediately available as he is still in the hospital.
