SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Hours after the arrest of one suspect believed to have opened fire on officers in Queensborough on Friday, Shreveport police have identified the second of the three men seen speeding away from the scene in a stolen car.

25-year-old Anthony Perot is wanted on warrants charging him with 5 counts of convicted felon in possession of a firearm and one count of possession of a firearm with CDS. Police say Perot was one of the three men in a black 2011 Dodge Charger that pulled up and opened fire on officers who were attempting to serve a warrant at a house in the 3700 block of Sumner St. just before 3:15 p.m. Friday. That’s the same block where police say Perot lives.

The men in the Charger then took off, leading officers on a high-speed chase through the Queensborough neighborhood before they managed to get away. They were last seen on Carrie St.

Perot’s identification as a suspect came hours after the arrest of 21-year-old DeAndrew Mosley, who was taken into custody after officers executed a warrant at a home in the 1500 block of Summers St. in Shreveport’s Hollywood neighborhood around 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Mosely was taken in for questioning and charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder. No bond has been set.

Shreveport police say the US Marshals Office, Bossier City Police Department, and Shreveport Fire Department assisted in apprehending Mosely.
