SHREVEPORT - A man sought for the fatal shooting of a 13-year-old boy during a gathering at Shreveport park is in custody.

The U.S. Marshals Service says in a new release that Antonious Cawthorne of Shreveport surrendered Saturday at the Caddo Correctional Center.

A second-degree murder warrant had been issued for Cawthorne after the April 4 shooting of Keandre Broadway.

Police say a man was asked to leave after pulling a handgun during an argument at Hattie Perry Park. They say he began driving away, then stopped his car and fired into a crowd. Broadway died at University Health Medical Center.

Cawthorne was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center. Bond is set at $750,000.

The case is still under investigation.
