Attorneys see custody disputes soar through the trip

SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) – At least two men lost their lives this month in custody disputes.

Shreveport police confirmed on Monday November 29 that a father died after being wounded when a custody shift escalated to a shooting outside a gas station in Shreveport the night before. He had several gunshot wounds, including at least one in the lower abdomen.

And it was November 16 when 23-year-old Jamar Alexander Norris died after being shot at least twice in the torso on the 2900 block on Peach Street. Detectives learned that Norris and his estranged girlfriend were fighting over custody when their father allegedly shot Norris to death. The authorities have now arrested 55-year-old James Kelly Stubblefield for second degree murder.

Today, Tayler Davis of KSLA News 12 spoke to an attorney about the frequency of child custody disputes.

Davis was also told lawyers are seeing a surge in custody cases during the vacation.
