Strange Twist in Shreveport Fatal Double-Shooting
Investigators with the Shreveport Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit are releasing more details into what investigators say began as a robbery and ended in a shootout.
Over the past 48 hours detectives have procured evidence and witness accounts of the incident. Investigators believe that just before the robbery occurred, the store owner and two patrons were inside of the business. Three males, two identified as Anthony Lee (05/13/2004) and Martavious Henderson (01/23/2005), entered the business armed with weapons and demanded items from the clerk. At one point during the robbery, two of the three men jumped across the counter and took items from the clerk’s person, including a handgun.
The two male patrons escaped the business during the robbery and went to their vehicle, described as a blue Chevrolet 1500 extended cab pickup, and armed themselves. As the robbery suspects exited the business the customers engaged them, and an apparent exchange of gunfire took place between at least one of the patrons and the robbery suspects.
Two of the robbery suspects were struck by gunfire and ultimately succumbed to their injuries. The third robbery suspect escaped on foot and has not been identified at this time. He is described as a black male wearing gray shorts and a black hoodie and stands approximately 5’6” to 5’8” tall with a slender build.
Detectives are releasing photos of the third robbery suspect as well as the two patrons that engaged the robbery suspects. Detectives are asking the public to help identify the third robbery suspect as well as the two individuals that exchanged gunfire with the robbery suspects.
