The Murder of Shamia Little

 

Shamia Little was only 17 years-old when she was tragically murdered during July 2021. The teen lived in Shreveport, Louisiana at the time of her death. Those who knew Shamia describe her as a sweet and quiet young girl. She was also a model student. Shamia was due to begin her senior year of high school during the fall of 2021, and she had a bright future ahead of her. Unfortunately, that future was taken from both Shamia and her loved ones. 

Shamia was last seen alive on the night of July 6th, 2021. That evening, she went to Douglas Williams Park with an 18- or 19-year- old male friendAccording to said friend, an unknown man approached him and Shamia around 11:00 PM. The man reportedly pointed a gun at them, took their cell phones, and then led them into a nearby wooded area. At some point, Shamia's friend was able to run away. He then flagged down a police officer parked nearby on Greenwood Road. By this point, Shamia and the gunman were nowhere to be found. 

Six days later, Shamia's body was found behind a business in the 4100 block of Curtis Lane. She had been shot to death. Investigators are still searching for Shamia's killer, and the FBI is involved in the case. The friend who was with Shamia the night she was reportedly abducted was questioned at length and has not been identified as a suspect. Shortly after Shamia's body was identified, it was reported that police had at least one suspect - but to this day no arrests have been made. 

The FBI is offering a $50,000 reward for anyone with information that could lead to Shamia's killer(s). If you have any information that could help the investigation, please submit a tip.
