Shreveport Man Killed on Cross Lake Named
The Caddo Parish Coroner's Office has named the man killed on Cross Lake on Sunday. Elvis Earl Edwards, 51, of the 6700 block of Broadacres Road in Shreveport was jet-skiing Sunday when he was thrown into the water of the lake just before 5PM. Edwards was declared dead at the scene.
There was another person reported on the jet-ski at the time, who was able to get out of the water safely. Other boaters were able to assist law enforcement in the search by using their sonar devices to help officials pinpoint where to search. It isn't clear whether life-vests were worn.
No others details have been released as the Shreveport Police Department continues to investigate the accident. An autopsy has been ordered.
