Body Cam Footage Released of Fatal Shreveport Shooting
According to a statement released by the Louisiana State Police:
Detectives assigned to the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations were requested by the Shreveport Police Department (SPD) to investigate an officer-involved shooting. The shooting incident involved a SPD officer and resulted in the death of 43-year-old Alonzo Bagley of Shreveport.
The preliminary investigation revealed that at approximately 10:51 p.m., on February 3, 2023, two SPD officers responded to the Villa Norte Apartment Complex, located in the 1600 block of Fullerton Street near North Hearne Avenue. The call for service was received by Caddo 911 in reference to a domestic disturbance. During the course of the investigation, both officers responded to a second floor apartment. Once inside, Mr. Bagley exited the apartment on the balcony and jumped to the ground. He then fled on foot. Following a short foot pursuit, SPD officer Alexander Tyler located Mr. Bagley and fired one shot from his service weapon, which struck Mr. Bagley in the chest. Mr. Bagley was transported to Ochsner LSU Health in Shreveport for treatment, but was later pronounced deceased.
Louisiana State Police is the lead investigating agency into this officer-involved shooting. The incident scene was processed by Louisiana State Police Crime Lab Technicians.
