A Shreveport woman sits in jail today charged with attempted second degree murder in a bizarre stabbing at a local library.  


After a warrant had been issued Friday for her arrest, 26-year-old Sade Tillman this morning surrendered to authorities at the Shreveport Police Department’s patrol desk.


Just before 10 a.m. Friday (August 8, 2014), Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to the Wallette Branch of the Shreve Memorial Library in the 300 block of Hearne Avenue relative to a stabbing. 


Upon arrival, officers located 25-year-old Leanthony Hall, who was suffering from a single stab wound to the upper body.  Hall was transported to University Health Center by the Shreveport Fire Department with potentially life-threatening injuries. 

Based on evidence and information gathered during their ongoing investigation, detectives obtained an arrest warrant charging 26-year-old Tillman with one count of attempted second degree murder.  She subsequently was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on the outstanding warrant.

Investigators believe other suspects may be involved and are working at this time to identify and apprehend those persons. Anyone with any information regarding this case should contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373 or www.lockemup.org
