A Shreveport man was arrested on a Caddo Sheriff’s warrant for firing shots into a Vivian home where several people were asleep inside, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.
On November 29, a woman reported someone shooting at her residence in the 500 block of North Hickory. Three bullets hit the house and damaged the wall of a bedroom where she was sleeping with her four children.
Caddo Sheriff’s Detective Andy Scoggins investigated the shooting and obtained a warrant for Benny Richmond, 32.
On Thursday, Caddo Sheriff’s Deputy Justin McDonnell and members of the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force located Richmond on Dixon Street in Shreveport. Richmond fled on foot but was soon apprehended.
Richmond was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center on the warrant obtained by Scoggins for aggravated criminal damage to property. He was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and resisting an officer.
The investigation is continuing.
