Man Arrested On Domestic Shooting Charges
Shreveport Police Domestic Violence investigators have a man behind bars for charges stemming from a Wednesday morning domestic violence incident turned shooting.
On October 14, 2020, just after 10:00 a.m., Shreveport Police patrol officers responded to reports of a shooting in the 4300 block of Illinois Street at the Clear Horizon Apartment Complex. Arriving officers located a 25-year-old woman suffering from one gunshot wound to the abdomen. She was transported to Ochsner LSU Hospital with what was described as non-life threatening injuries.
Officers made contact with the woman’s boyfriend, 20-year-old Cadarious Davis (DOB 4-22-1990), who advised that he was attempting to leave the apartment following a verbal domestic dispute between him and the victim. Davis advised that as he was attempting to leave a struggle ensued over his backpack which contained a .9mm handgun. The gun allegedly discharged during that encounter and struck the victim. Davis rendered first aid until officers arrived.
Investigators with the Crime Scene Investigation Unit and Domestic Violence Units were summoned to the scene. Detectives procured a search warrant for the residence and CSIU photographed the scene and collected evidence.
Davis was transported to the Shreveport Police Complex for interviews. During their ongoing investigation, detectives learned that Davis was accused of battering the shooting victim in a separate incident back in August of 2020. The battery was allegedly committed in the presence of two children. After reviewing photos and evidence in that case, they determined that probable cause did exist for his arrest relative to that incident.
Following interviews with investigators Davis was charged with one count of Felon in Possession of a Firearm and two counts of Domestic Abuse Battery with Child Endangerment. The investigation is ongoing.
