A Caddo Parish jury deliberated less than an hour before finding Kenmiccael Dano Ray guilty of the 2022 slaying of Shreveport teen Landry Anglin.
The eight-woman, four-man jury in District Judge Ramona Emanuel’s court unanimously found Shreveporter Ray, 25, guilty-as-charged of second-degree murder for the May 1, 2022 death of Anglin, a 13-year-old girl struck by a stray bullet while visiting with relatives in the 4500 block of Fairfield Avenue. The bullet was fired in the course of a running gun battle between gang members, including Ray. The 40 minutes of deliberation ended the weeklong trial.
Over the course of the trial, the prosecution called 10 witnesses and produced evidence to prove Ray was affiliated with a gang in Shreveport and fired an assault-style rifle at a vehicle pursuing him on Erie Street between Thornhill and Line avenues. Evidence also showed that occupants in the pursuing vehicle returned fire.
After the shooting, Ray fled to Arlington, Texas, where five days later he was apprehended by the by the U.S. Marshals and found to be in possession of the Kel-Tech assault weapon that was used in the Anglin slaying. An expert from the North Louisiana Crime Lab proved that the bullet that killed Anglin was fired from Ray’s weapon. Shreveport police officers and detectives testified, as did other Texas-based members of the U.S. Marshals.
Ray will return to Judge Emanuel’s court July 16, 2024, where he faces a mandatory life sentence without possibility of probation, parole or suspension of sentence.
Three co-defendants also are awaiting trial for the slaying.
Assistant District Attorneys Ron Christopher Stamps, Christopher Bowman and Britney Green prosecuted the case. Leslie Kelly defended Ray.
The case was docket Nos. 389215 and 389620.
