BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) — Police say a man arrested in connection with the death of a Bossier City apartment complex manager had been fired from a maintenance job by the company that oversees the apartments.
The victim in Wednesday morning’s shooting was 32-year-old April Fulghum, a mother of two. The shooting happened about 11:45 a.m. in an apartment office. Two workers escaped unharmed.
About two hours after the shooting, a man identified as 54-year-old Robert Earl Walter turned himself over to Shreveport police. He was later booked at the Bossier City Jail on a count of second-degree murder. Bond was set at $750,000.
Police said Walter had been fired from his job as a maintenance worker for Fairfield Property Management, the company that oversees maintenance at Lexington Place Apartments, where the shooting occurred.
