A Shreveport juvenile wanted in connection to multiple shootings was arrested in Minden Monday afternoon.

Minden police and agents with the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force took 16-year-old Toby Jackson into custody in the 400 block of West Todd Street following a Crime Stoppers tip.

Shreveport police say Jackson is responsible for a shooting that left a Shreveport man injured.

Just after midnight Sunday, Shreveport police were called to a home in the 1300 block of Glen Oaks for a report of a shooting. When officers arrived, they found 25-year-old Leonardo Copeland with multiple gunshot wounds to his lower body.

Copeland was transferred to University Health with non-life threatening injuries.

During an investigation, police discovered the shooting was a result of an argument between Jackson and Copeland.

Police were searching for Jackson after they say he escaped police custody during transport to the Caddo Juvenile Detention Center on May 8. Jackson is also accused of shooting a Shreveport man in the neck in 2014.

  2. to all you gun-grabbers: explain how a 16 YO “legally” obtained a gun! Minority youth violence against other minority youth is a national epidemic and gun laws don’t help because criminals of all ages don’t give a whit about ANY laws. This is yet another example of how vital it is for society to have strong homes in which to properly mentor our children. “Jelani”: lose the CAPS. They make what you’ve written harder to read and keep your txt-speech to yer cell phone. Maybe you need to get help with your grammar and spelling too šŸ˜‰
