Caddo deputies searching for accused gunman James Salone

ArkLaTex Most Wanted

Caddo Parish authorities are searching for a man they say held a family at gunpoint Wednesday night on Springridge Texas State Line Road.

Authorities say 56-year old James Salone broke into a home where his ex-girlfriend, Terry Thomas, and her children, 12 and 14, were living. 

Salone bound the two children and woman inside the home. He shot Thomas several times, including twice in the buttocks.

When authorities arrived, he released all three of them. Thomas was taken to Oschner LSU Health by ambulance for her injuries. 

Salone then went outside and shot several times at deputies, Thomas, and the children before going back inside of the home. 

The Caddo Sheriff’s Special Response Team responded to the scene, but could not find Salone inside of the residence once they went inside. 

As of now, he has a warrant for his arrest charging him with one count of attempted first-degree murder while other charges are pending as well. 

Anyone with information in the case should call the Sheriff’s Office at (318) 675-2170.
