He was wanted for a homicide on May 6 on Whitridge Avenue that police said was retaliation for a drug dispute.


“Don’t let his age fool you,” Police Spokesman T.J. Smith during a press conference.” He’s somebody we believe is a very violent individual. He is a veteran in the criminal justice system already, and he is possibly a veteran killer, and we need him off the streets and we need the public's help."

Shreveport police along with help from the U.S. Marshall’s Office and other law enforcement agencies arrested Wall Monday afternoon. Authorities believe he may have been hiding in the area for several months.
