Bossier Sheriff’s Office Detectives are investigating the shooting death of an elderly Shreveport man who
was killed shortly before 7pm at a residence in a neighborhood just south of Benton. Detectives say that
the victim had just pulled into the driveway of the residence and exited his vehicle when a suspect
identified as a black male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt approached him and shot him multiple
times in the upper body. Life saving measures were performed by neighbors prior to the arrival of EMS
but were unsuccessful and the victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.

During the subsequent investigation, detectives were able to locate the suspect vehicle at a residence in
North Shreveport. This led to the execution of a two search warrants by the Shreveport Police
Department Special Response Team and Bossier Sheriff’s Office investigators in the early morning hours
on June 14th at two locations in Shreveport.

As the investigation progressed, detectives were able to identify Destiny Landers, 23 of Shreveport as the
driver of the suspect vehicle and Delandro Fleming, 22 of Shreveport as the suspect in the homicide that
occurred in Bossier Parish.

Landers was arrested during the execution of one of the search warrants and Fleming was arrested at a
residence on Captain Shreve Drive in Shreveport.

A motive for the shooting has yet to be determined.

Landers will be booked into the Bossier Max on one count of First-Degree Murder with a bond set at
$500,000.

Fleming will be booked into the Bossier Max on one count of First-Degree Murder with a bond set at
$1,000,000.
