Bienville Parish arrest made in connection to August shooting

A Shreveport man wanted since last August of 2022 was arrested Wednesday afternoon, April 19, at the Bienville II apartment complex in Ringgold.

The U.S. Marshals Task Force with the assistance of the Bienville Parish Sheriff’s Special Response Team apprehended LaDerrick Randle, 32, and arrested him on a warrant issued by the Shreveport Police Department.

The shooting that occurred last year in the 4000 block of Walker Street in Shreveport, left a woman with life-threatening injuries.

Randle was arrested as a fugitive from Caddo Parish for attempted second-degree murder, Claiborne Parish for second-degree battery charges, and Bienville Parish for drugs and weapons charges.

According to Bienville Parish Sheriff John Ballance, Randle was taken into custody without incident and was discovered to be armed with a semiautomatic pistol at the time of this arrest.

“He also had on his person a quantity of methamphetamine and a pipe commonly used for smoking illegal drugs,” said Ballance. 

Randall was booked into the Bienville Parish Jail and was later transferred to Claiborne Parish where he awaits a 72-hour hearing.
