A Shreveport man has been taken into custody for his alleged role in a shooting that seriously injured a local man Thursday evening in Shreveport's Highland neighborhood.

SPD says it happened near the intersection of Centenary Blvd. and Merrick St. around 9 PM.

The victim, Vincent Ilari, 27, was taken to LSU Health for a potentially life-threatening gunshot wound to his lower back.

During the investigation, authorities gathered information that suggested Ilari was shot by an adult male who approached him armed with a gun, demanding items of value. Ilari was reportedly shot after not being able to satisfy the suspect's demands. The would be robber, described as a black male wearing a red shirt, denim shorts and red socks, was last seen fleeing the scene running south bound on Centenary Boulevard.

Detectives were eventually able to gather evidence linking 26 year-old Carl Lee Murray, to the crime. Just before midnight, authorities found Murray at a home in the 400 block Stoner Avenue where he was taken into custody without incident. Murray, who refused to make a statement regarding his alleged involvement in the shooting, was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on charges of Attempted First Degree Murder.

As of Friday afternoon, Vincent Ilari is listed in fair condition at LSU Hospital.
