OPSO investigating a shooting on Finks Hideaway Road in Monroe



MONROE, La.— An arrest has been made in connection to a September shooting at the Hideaway Place Apartments that injured one person.

According to court documents, deputies with the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office were called to the 500 block of Finks Hideaway Road on September 24, 2020, in reference to a shooting.

When deputies arrived, two victims told deputies that 23-year-old Taireek Anderson, along with another suspect, came to their home armed with guns. Anderson and the other suspect allegedly lured the female victim out of her home and then battered her once outside. When the victim’s boyfriend tried to intervene, one of the suspects began shooting at the boyfriend with a handgun.

During the battery, Anderson was allegedly wearing a bandanna to hide his face but that bandanna lowered and revealed his face to the victim who recognized him. Anderson allegedly fled the scene after the shooting.

Anderson is currently being held at the Ouachita Correctional Center on one count of Attempted Second Degree Murder.
