[ARCHIVED] Suspect now faces murder charges in December shooting

A Shreveport man arrested back in December 2016, has now been charged with murder in the death of a local man. 
 
Just before midnight on December 17, 2016, Shreveport Police patrol officers were called to the parking lot of the McDonald's restaurant located in the 1100 block of Kings Highway relative to a shooting.  As officers arrived at the scene, they learned the victim, 25-year-old Donald Young of Shreveport, was suffering a gunshot wound to the chest, after pulling onto the store's parking lot from the roadway.  Young was transported by ambulance from the scene of the crime, to University Health hospital in critical condition. 

During that evening, authorities were able to gather information leading them to arrest and charge 30-year-old John Chapman of Shreveport with the shooting.  Chapman was taken into police custody hours later and charged with Attempted Second-Degree Murder, Illegal Use of a weapon, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm.  Shreveport Police detectives were notified the evening of January 20, 2017, that Donald Young’s medical condition had worsened and he succumbed to his injuries.  Chapman, who remains jailed at the Caddo Correctional Center has now been charged with Second Degree Murder in the death of Young.
