Man Arrested for Shooting Death of Man Found in Lake Bistineau

According to KTBS, Shreveport police have made an arrest in the shooting death of man found in Lake Bistineau.

On Sunday, a crappie fisherman found a man’s heavily tattooed body partially submerged in Lake Bistineau.  He was later identified as 24-year-old Borris Williams of Shreveport. 

Grant and Williams were roommates in the 3000 block of Lufkin Street in Shreveport.  Detectives said Williams was shot multiple times at the home.  Detectives have not released the motive for the shooting.

Following the shooting, Williams’s body was transported approximately 25 miles where it was dumped off of the Highway 154 bridge.  Investigators located blood where they believe the man was pushed off of the bridge.  Grant may not have known that water level at Lake Bistineau is down by as much as eight feet due to the scheduled drawdown which began in July.

The Bienville Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries assisted with the body recovery and searched the surrounding area for evidence.

Shreveport police arrested and charged Reginald Grant, 24, of Shreveport with second-degree murder and convicted felon in possession of a firearm.  His bond has been set at $425,000.  Grant has a police record dating to December 2016.
