SHREVEPORT, La. -

Sources tell KTBS 3 News that another Shreveport Firefighter was placed on administrative leave Friday night. That's the latest news in that scandal rocking the Shreveport Fire Department.

Other new developments include some pictures involving one of the suspects and a Shreveport Police cruiser.

During the KTBS 3 News at 9 p.m. on Friday, the pictures were publicly available on Facebook. All you had to do was find Derrick Harris, the Captain who is now charged with Principal to Prostitution and Cruelty to the Infirm and click through his photos.

What we found was a series of two cell phone photographs taken at station 8 and posted to Facebook on June 16th. These photos seem to be intended as a joke. The first photo showed one of the alleged victims, a mentally handicapped man, posing with his back to the camera. The caption read "It's never smart to pee on a police car....never!!!" A few people responded and Harris wrote back to someone saying he's the one who took the photographs.

The second photograph showed the same man but this time the man was on his hands and knees while another person stood over him with a knee and hand on the man's back. This photograph was captioned "or this is what will happen!!!!" We should mention that the man standing in the photo does not appear to be wearing a Shreveport Police uniform but you can clearly see the cruiser's vehicle number 532 displayed.

Because there is a police cruiser in the photographs, we reached out to the Shreveport Police Department to see who was assigned to vehicle 532 on that day. Shreveport Police will not be able to release that information since it is part of an ongoing criminal investigation but we are actively pursuing this story and the information about the firefighter put on leave Friday night.
