Shreveport Multiple Felon Arrested in Fatal Hit-And-Run
On Tuesday, January 10, 2023, at approximately 06:30 p.m., Shreveport Police patrol officers attempted to stop a 2006 Hyundai sedan at the 3132 eastbound Walker Road exit. As the officer activated lights and sirens to signal for the driver to pull over, the vehicle accelerated rapidly, running a red light at the Walker Road intersection. The vehicle struck a 2017 Chevy Malibu that was legally crossing the intersection.
The driver then exited the vehicle armed with a firearm and fled on foot from officers into a wooded area. A search of the area was unable to locate the suspect. Officers immediately contacted Shreveport Fire Department who responded to the scene. The adult female driver and a small child were transported from the scene with what were described as critical injuries.
The Shreveport Police Department was later notified that the driver of the Chevy Malibu Faith Alexander, 31, died at Ochsner LSU Health from injuries sustained in the crash. In the early morning hours of January 11th, 2023, Shreveport Police Department Crash investigations were notified that Alexander’s 4-year-old daughter, Amelia R. Ellis, critically injured in the same wreck, succumbed to her injuries.
Through the investigation that followed this crash, it was determined that the suspect believed responsible for this fatal hit-and-run was Terrance Dangerfield (1/5/98). On January 11th, 2023, Dangerfield was taken into custody by Shreveport Police Crash Investigators.
Dangerfield, a multiple felon, has a very long history of criminal activity in both Caddo and Bossier Parish. Terrance "Baby T" Dangerfield is well known by law enforcement in the area, for trying to flee police and resist arrest.
Dangerfield's record dates back to 2016, when he was arrested in Caddo Parish for Nonconsensual disclosure of private image.
Dangerfield has a lengthy record out of Bossier Parish as well. He has charges in Bossier including resisting arrest, illegal use of weapons by a felon, and drug possession.
Many people in the community are questioning why this man was out of jail and free to allegedly commit this horrible crime.
