Armed robbery suspect in custody after high-speed chase from Bossier City into Shreveport


BOSSIER CITY, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A high-speed chase involving an armed bank robbery suspect spotted in Bossier City has ended with a crash in North Shreveport.

Bossier City police say the suspect is a 17-year-old male who was wanted for several armed robberies in Texas and the Shreveport-Bossier area. Police say he had just attempted an armed robbery at the Shed Road Mini Mart and then went to a gas station and tobacco shop at Airline and Old Minden before he was spotted by an officer who tried to stop him as he was driving down Barksdale Boulevard.

Instead, the armed robbery suspect fled and headed into Shreveport, where SPD and Louisiana State Police joined in the chase. It all ended on David Raines Road in the MLKS neighborhood just after 8 p.m. when a Bossier City police officer rammed the suspect’s car.

One person was taken from the scene in an ambulance.
