One year later: No justice for slain Shreveport teen

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. -

A year after his death, friends and family of Chauncey "Trey" Broadway are still looking for justice.

"I just keep praying," Chauncey Broadway Sr. told KTBS 3 News at this son's memorial Feb. 12.
"That's all I can really do. "

Broadway was killed in the early morning hours March 3, 2013 at a house party on Shreveport's Burlinggame Blvd. Police said at the time that someone- or multiple people- fired shots from outside the building. Several bullets traveled through a window; one killed Broadway.

Police arrests two teenagers in the weeks following Broadway's murder, but just months later the case came to an end.

Prosecutors took their case before a grand jury, a requirement when life imprisonment or capital punishment are on the line.

"It's kind of a safe guard on the citizenry," District Attorney Charles Scott said of the step.

This time, however, the victim's family says justice was not served. The jury failed to indict either suspect and charges were dropped.

"The vast majority of them do issue an indictment because we don't take cases before the grand jury that we feel are not sufficient," Scott said.

The DA's office has previously said that the Broadway case was open and ongoing. Shreveport Police said their investigation is complete.
