Early November 4, 2021, just before 1:45 a.m., Shreveport Police responded to reports of a welfare concern in the 400 block of west 82nd Street. A woman was checking on the welfare of her son and arrived at the residence to find the back door open. She entered the residence and located three individuals, two adults and a 12-year-old child, deceased from what appeared to be gunshot injuries. Patrol officers secured the scene and summoned detectives.
Violent Crimes and Crime Scene Investigators responded to the scene. Detectives collected evidence and interviewed witnesses as well as gathered video evidence.
