The previous day, on May 13, officers were dispatched to 4305 Illinois Avenue, where they found a 10-month-old child left unattended in a vehicle. Shawnetterian Pearson, 23, was arrested and charged with one count of child desertion.

The Shreveport Police Department would like to remind the public that children should only be left alone if they are capable of fending for themselves. This includes the ability to call for help if needed and perform basic tasks to avoid dangerous situations. Small children should never be left to supervise other small children.
