Louisiana State Police has released new information on the shooting of Alonzo Bagley.
On Feb. 6, LSP provided preliminary investigation details to the public during a press conference.
It was revealed that at approximately 10:51 p.m. Feb. 3, two Shreveport Police officers responded to the Villa Norte Apartment Complex in the 1600 block of Fullerton Street.
Officers were called to this location in regard to a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, the officers made contact with Bagley, who then exited the apartment via the balcony.
Officer Alexander Tyler, 23, was then taken on a short foot chase. Tyler made contact with Bagley when he rounded the corner of the building and fired one shot. A bullet struck Bagley once in the chest.

Tyler began performing lifesaving aid to Bagley until Shreveport Fire Department arrived on the scene and transported him to Ochsner LSU Health. Around 11:30 p.m. Bagley was pronounced dead.
State Police Col. Lamar Davis said that through the preliminary investigation, detectives were unable to locate any weapons near or on Bagley.
"I'm asking for the community to remain patient as we continue to conduct a very thorough investigation," said Davis. "While some may think that this is something that we can arrive to a conclusion immediately, I offer that it's incumbent upon us to conduct a very thorough investigation so that we have all the facts. Transparency in the investigation is a priority for our agency."
Bagley's family has retained Haley & Associates. In a press release, Haley & Associates said, "our office will walk through this process with the Bagley family, to ensure transparency and accountability. Attorney Ron Haley believes accountability will result in consequences in both civil and criminal courts."
