Man shot, killed by Centenary College officer

November 20, 2014

Shrevport, Louisiana -- A man died after being shot on the campus of Centenary College of Louisiana by one of the institution's police officers just before 6 p.m. Thursday.

Shreveport Police Department spokesman Cpl. Marcus Hines said the man -- identified as 35-year-old Charles Marcus McCauley of Shreveport -- pulled out a handgun during a struggle with two Centenary College Department of Public Safety officers. In response, one of the officers fired at least one gunshot at McCauley in front of the John F. Magale Memorial Library, where he collapsed.

Court records show McCauley has been charged with threatening a public official, resisting a police officer with force, disturbing the peace and domestic abuse battery, among other counts.

Reached by phone, a man identifying himself as McCauley's father said, "He was 35 years old, and he was shot to death last night, and that's all you need to know," before saying "thank you" and hanging up.

Dear Centenary Family,

Tonight, I am incredibly grateful to report that all Centenary students, faculty, and staff are safe, and that no member of the Centenary family was physically harmed during a tragic and frightening incident that occurred on our campus this afternoon.

Shortly after 4:30 pm, a visitor to campus sought help from staff members on the second floor of Hamilton Hall. The staff members attempted to assist him, but because he was exhibiting suspicious behavior, they contacted the Department of Public Safety. DPS advised the occupants of Hamilton Hall to take precautions.

DPS officers also came to Hamilton Hall to monitor the situation. Once the man exited the building,, the staff members were able to tell DPS that the man had a handgun. DPS officers attempted to stop the man, and he raised his firearm at one of the officers. At this point, another DPS officer shot him. Paramedics were called to campus to attend to his injuries, but he later died.

We will continue to update the Centenary family as we know more about this incident, but please join me tonight in prayers for all involved in this tragic incident. And please reach out to those who need your love and comfort tonight.

Take Care,

David Rowe
