WEBSTER PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — A Doyline teenager has been arrested for allegedly shooting and killing a Shreveport teen in Webster Parish early Friday morning.
According to Webster Sheriff Jason Parker, 18-year-old Dallas Major Edwards was charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of 19-year-old Shane Isiah Siah.
Shortly before 2:00 a.m. deputies responded to a call in the 1100 block of Hwy 163 in Doyline. When deputies arrived they found Siah with a gunshot wound to the back. He died at the scene.
According to detectives, Siah and his brother went to Edwards’ house to get some items they believed Edwards had stolen from them.
Edwards told deputies that he heard a knock at the back door and grabbed his rifle before opening it. Edwards then told investigators that he saw a black male holding an “AR” rifle and as the man turned to run he shot him through the glass door in the back.
Sheriff Parker said the preliminary investigation showed that Siah and Edwards were close friends and often frequented each other’s homes.
Edwards was booked into the Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center. The investigation is ongoing.
