A cash reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of two men who are wanted for attempted murder.

Calveon Raphiel, 19, and Quinterrius Brown, 18, are wanted by the Shreveport police on warrants charging them each with one count of attempted first-degree murder.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact Caddo-Shreveport Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373 or by using the app P3Tips. Remember: Crime Stoppers wants your information, not your name.

The charges stem from a shooting that was reported on March 5.

At around 2 p.m. that day, Shreveport police patrol officers went to Willis-Knighton South concerning a shooting victim. Responding officers learned that 20-year-old Damian King was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle for treatment for non-life-threatening gunshot injuries.

“Based off of evidence and information gathered during their ongoing inquiry, detectives learned that King was a passenger in a vehicle near the intersection of Jewella Avenue and Meriwether Road when a white Chevy sedan pulled alongside of him and fired multiple shots into the vehicle,” Shreveport police said in a news release.

Raphiel and Brown were, at some point, identified as suspects and detectives procured warrants for their arrest.
