Shreveport police have converged around the Caddo Juvenile Justice Complex on Spring Street hunting for an attempted murder suspect.

Police tell KEEL News the 16-year-old suspect escaped early this morning. The 16-year-old was being transported to the complex by a police officer when he escaped at about 1AM.

He was arrested on St. Vincent overnight in connection with a shooting from last year. The teenager is described as a black male, about 140 pounds, 5'6. He was wearing a brown shirt and blue jean shorts.

We are awaiting details about how he got away from police. KEEL News will have updates throughout the morning.
