Shreveport Teen Gets 85 Year Prison Sentence for 2020 Murder
A Shreveport teen who shot two people at a west Shreveport motel in July 2020, killing one, must serve at least 85 years in prison at hard labor, a Caddo District Judge decreed Monday, September 12, 2022.
Derion Deshun Jamison, 19, found guilty of second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and aggravated assault by a firearm in Judge Chris Victory's court August 24, 2022, must serve 50 years at hard labor for the attempted murder and 10 years at hard labor for the assault. He was sentenced to life in prison for the murder but due to his being under age 18 at the time of the slaying, he may be parole eligible after serving 25 years. The sentences are to be serve consecutively.
The shootings occurred July 19, 2020, at the Country Inn Suites hotel on Hollywood Avenue near Shreveport Regional Airport.
That day, the victims, along with family members, drove to Shreveport from Rayville to visit Splash Kingdom. Returning from the water park, the victims returned to their hotel, where one victim came into contact with a girl who asked him about his tattoos. Jamison, who was present, got into an argument with the victim, which did not turn violent. A short while later, the victim saw Jamison outside. The victim who ultimately died, 22-year-old Ha'Shoun Ka'Keem Collins, came back to the hotel later to speak with Jamison about the earlier argument. After a brief conversation, Jamison and Collins shook hands and separated. However, Jamison then commented to Collins that he felt disrespected, pulled out a 9-mm handgun and shot Collins in the chest, killing him. Jamison then shot the victim he had argued with earlier in the chest as well, as well as a third man, Collins' brother. Those two victims survived and, along with witnesses, picked Jamison out of lineups. Ballistic evidence confirmed later that a gun found in the car Jamison used to flee police had fired the bullets in the shootings.
