SHREVEPORT - A 27-year-old Shreveport man faces a first-degree murder charge for his alleged role in the death of police officer Thomas LaValley.

Grover Cannon is currently being held without bond at Caddo Correctional Center.

The Times reports a Caddo Parish grand jury returned the first-degree murder indictment on Thursday.

Cannon will be in court on Oct. 20 for arraignment on the first-degree murder charge.

Officer LaValley was responding to a family dispute call on Aug. 5 when he was gunned down. Cannon was captured the next day after a massive manhunt.

The 29-year-old LaValley was shot six times, twice in the head from an 18-to-24-inch range.
