4 Shreveport police officers indicted in connection with Tommie McGlothen’s murder

Four officers have been charged in the death of Tommie McGlothen Jr. who was killed on April 5, 2020 in Shreveport, LA. “In reviewing the case, Caddo Parish Coroner Dr. Todd Thoma determined McGlothen’s death was preventable in that the responding officers should have known McGlothen needed medical treatment. The officers had, in fact, been notified of McGlothen’s mental condition during the first of three encounters with officers within a short time span. In each encounter, McGlothen exhibited signs he was a mental patient in need of medical treatment, according to information provided by the coroner’s office.” More of the story here.
