A Shreveport man was found guilty Wednesday, February 26, 2020, in Caddo District Court of two attempted first-degree murders stemming from attacks on police officers in the summer of 2018.

Isaiah Martin, 21, was found guilty as charged by the four-man, eight-woman jury in District Judge Katherine Dorroh’s courtroom.

The jury determined that on June 30, 2018, following a traffic stop of a car in which Martin was a passenger, he pulled out a handgun and fired shots at police officers who in turn wounded him before he fled and evaded capture for almost two weeks. He ultimately was apprehended by Shreveport police and U.S. Marshals.

Martin’s trial commenced Monday, February 24, 2020, with the jury returning its verdict after just under 90 minutes.

When Martin returns to Judge Dorroh’s courtroom on March 19, 2020, for sentencing, he faces 20 to 50 years at hard labor without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence on each count.

Martin was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Jason W. Waltman and Nancy Berger-Schneider. He was defended by Daniel Farris.
