Shreveport Police make arrest in triple murder case

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. -

A local man is in custody Friday afternoon in connection with a triple murder in west Shreveport last week.

Detectives with the Shreveport Police Department's Violent Crimes Unit arrested Tommy Wilson, 57, at his home in the 1000 block of Lafourche Circle.

Police believe Wilson killed his ex-girlfriend Carise Ellison, her mother Irene Ellison, and Carise's current boyfriend Bryan Wilson at their home in Shreveport's Mooretown community.

The bodies were discovered last Thursday after Shreveport Police received a frantic 911 call just before 10:00 p.m. from a family member who had come home and found all three victims deceased in the residence.

Investigators have been tirelessly working around the clock in an effort to identify and apprehend the person or persons responsible for this heinous crime. Based on evidence recovered at the scene of the crime as well as other information gathered during their ongoing inquiry, detectives were able to identify Wilson as the suspect they believe killed the victims. Wilson is currently being interviewed by authorities and will be booked into the Shreveport City Jail on three counts of second degree murder.

His bond has been set at $1,500,000.
