A Caddo Parish teen can face adult charges in connection with a recent shooting that has a man fighting for his life in a local hospital.
Probable cause was found with regard to Omarion Goodwin, 17, for a charge of attempted second-degree murder, following a hearing Monday, April 11, 2022 in Caddo Parish Juvenile Court.
The finding resulted from a Shreveport Police investigation into the shooting of Taylon Brown at the Circle K gas station in the 6300 block of Jefferson-Page Road on April 6, 2022. The investigation included a review of store surveillance video that showed Goodwin shooting Brown in the head and a shoulder shortly after entering the store. Several witnesses also identified Goodwin as the shooter.
Goodwin was arrested on April 7, 2022 and was remanded to the parish juvenile detection center without bond. Brown was transported to Ochsner LSU Health hospital where he remains in intensive care.
Goodwin can be tried as an adult under provisions of Louisiana Children’s Code Article 305, which allows a District Attorney to have jurisdiction of certain juvenile offenders age 15 or older transferred to District Court.
Assistant District Attorney Janet Silvie secured the finding.
