Law enforcement seek wanted fugitive
The Bossier Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies are looking for a fugitive out of Tennessee who could possibly be in Bossier City after being dropped off this afternoon by his girlfriend.
Bossier Sheriff’s Office, Bossier City Police Department and U.S. Marshals Service are looking for Johnny J. Shouse, 41, from the Chattanooga, Tenn., area, wanted for attempted first degree murder and aggravated arson from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.
Earlier this afternoon, his girlfriend, Gladys George, turned herself into the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at the substation on Highway 3. She told detectives she had recently dropped Shouse off on Highway 3 just south of I-220. His direction of travel is unknown. George is currently being interviewed by Bossier Sheriff’s Office investigators.
Detectives believe Shouse could possibly still be in the area or elsewhere. They do not believe he is armed.
He is 5 feet, 11 inches tall, weighs 250 pounds and has a large tattoo on the back of his head. He was last seen wearing black sweat pants, black jacket, black Nike shoes and carrying a black or dark-colored backpack.
If you see him, please contact the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at 318-965-2203. Although detectives do not believe Shouse is armed, they ask that you do not approach him.
