A man has been captured in Houston after the shooting of a Shreveport police officer prompted a Louisiana manhunt. U.S. marshals arrested 25-year-old Lucien Trammell of Shreveport last night. He faces a charge of attempted first-degree murder for allegedly shooting Officer John Madjerick.

Shreveport Police Chief Henry Whitehorn announced the arrest outside LSU Hospital where Madjerick is being treated.

The 23-year-old officer remains in serious but stable condition after being shot in the face as he tried to question Trammell about a rash of burglaries occurring in a neighborhood.
