Tre'Veon Jackson, Libert Burns, Jaylen Burns, Tarus Walton

SHREVEPORT, La. -- Shreveport police have arrested four men in a mid-August shooting that left one dead and two others injured. 

One of the four was arrested in a separate homicide that happened two days later. 

Tre'Veon Jackson, 19, of Shreveport is charged with two count of second-degree murder and two counts of attempted second-degree murder in the Aug. 12 shooting death of 24-year-old Javoris Debouse. He's also charged in the Aug. 14 death of 31-year-old Horace Sparks. 

Authorities arrested Jackson Wednesday in the 1800 block of North Market Street without incident. He's held on bonds totaling over $1.1 million. 

Shreveport police spokeswoman Sgt. Angie Wilhite said Jackson was identified as the person responsible for Debouse's death. It happened just before 2:30 p.m. Aug. 12 in the 600 block of West 64th Street.

Debouse, another adult male and a juvenile were shot multiple times. Debouse died at the hospital. 

Booked into the Shreveport City Jail on charges unrelated to Debouse' death were 19-year-old Jaylen Burns, 26-year-old Libert Burns and 19-year-old Tarus Walton. 

On Aug. 19, police learned evidence analyzed by the Northwest Louisiana Crime Lab connected Jaylen Burns, Libert Burns and Walton to Debouse's homicide, too, Wilhite said. So, each was then charged with two counts of attempted second-degree murder. 

When the officers caught up with Jackson on Wednesday, he was arrested on charges in Debouse's death as well as Sparks' death.

Sparks was killed in the parking lot of the Economy Inn 5100 block of Westwood Park Drive.
