Officers called to the scene on Madison Avenue just before 10 a.m. arrived to find 20-year-old Katrayvon B. Hill lying on the ground suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Hill was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Investigators combing the scene and gathering evidence learned that Hill and his cousin, 29-year-old Armand Burgy, were involved in a dispute over money – and both were armed with firearms.

Police say Burgy left the scene only to return a short time later and shoot Hill multiple times before fleeing the scene. However, he was taken into custody by patrol officers a short time later and interviewed by detectives.

Following interviews, detectives got a warrant charging Burgy with one count of second-degree murder. He was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on that charge, as well as one count each of second-degree robbery, convicted felon with a firearm, illegal possession of a stolen firearm, obstruction of justice, and domestic abuse battery. Police say Burgy also had a strangulation charge from a non-related domestic incident before the homicide.

Bond was set at $1,000,000.00.
