Four Arrested for Robbing Shreveport Burger King
Three men and one juvenile are behind bars for their alleged involvement in an armed robbery at a west Shreveport fast-food restaurant.
At around 7 a.m., police were called to Burger King in the 6300 block of Hearne Avenue to reports of an armed robbery and shots fired. When they arrived, they found out four masked men came into the restaurant and demanded money from inside the safe.
An employee told officers after the suspects took off with the money, one of them shot an employee's vehicle as the employee was pulling up to the business. The worker wasn't wounded. The suspects drove off in a brown four-door Crown Victoria, headed north on Hearne Avenue.
Police pursued the car on I-49, and it wrecked at the corner of Christian and Jewell Streets. The four suspects ran, but were caught a short time later in a patch of woods near Sprague Street. The bag containing the stolen money and the handguns were recovered where the suspects were caught.
Arrested and charged with armed robbery were 20-year-old David Gaines, 17-year-old Roderquis Sellers, 20-year-old Marquis Daniels and a juvenile. The men were booked into the Shreveport City Jail and the teen was taken to the Caddo Juvenile Detention Center.
