The latest fatality in escalating gang violence in Shreveport, La., has been identified as a 24-year-old Los Angeles man who had been sought by police as a suspect in a 1988 drive-by murder in the South-Central Los Angeles area. For the last year, police said, the suspect, Larry Alonzo Winters, had been living in Shreveport under the name "Dante Ford," becoming one of the leaders of a Crips faction whose war with another gang is believed responsible for scores of drive-by shootings.

General Motors Co. is suspending production of Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks at a factory in Shreveport, La., for at least one week starting Monday because of a shortage of parts coming from Japan. About 900 employees work at the plant. The workers will file for state unemployment benefits and will also receive some supplemental pay from GM that will bring their income to about 70% of their regular wages, according to the automaker. All of the major Japanese automakers have suspended production in Japan because of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit the island nation last week, but GM's closure was the first indication that damage to the auto parts supply chain would affect production in the United States.

Heavily armed policemen sealed off a 12-block area Wednesday night after hearing sporadic gunfire in a riot-scarred neighborhood where a white woman allegedly shot a black man to death 24 hours earlier. An emergency zone was expanded late Wednesday night in the Cedar Grove section soon after police rerouted traffic off a busy thoroughfare where blacks were throwing stones, bottles and bricks at passing cars.

INDEPENDENCE BOWL When: Monday, 2 p.m. PST. Where: Shreveport, La. On the air: ESPN2. About Georgia Tech (6-6): As usual, the Yellow Jackets had no trouble using their triple-option offense to pile up gaudy rushing statistics. Georgia Tech led the nation with an average of 327 rushing yards per game. But the Yellow Jackets struggled to stop opposing offenses ? especially down the stretch. Four of Georgia Tech's final five opponents ? Duke was the lone exception ?

Before she lost her job two years ago, Delany Henderson had no idea where Singapore was. She learned in a hurry. It was then that low-cost foreign competition forced AT&T to close its residential telephone factory, the last of its kind in the United States, and move the operation to the tiny island nation in Southeast Asia. AT&T began streamlining its business phones facility here at the same time and Henderson was one of more than 3,000 people who abruptly found themselves unemployed.

Under the glare of a radiant moon one recent night, about a dozen residents of this city's Cedar Grove area marched along the uncurbed asphalt streets of their neighborhood. And with posters in their hands declaring "Christ + You = Love Not Drugs," they bellowed spirituals with a fervor fit for a Sunday service. For more than 160 consecutive nights, this has been the scene on the mean streets of Cedar Grove.

The discovery Thursday was grisly enough, even before the police of Bossier City, La., connected it to anything else: a naked woman stabbed to death in the bedroom of her apartment above a Mormon church in the Shreveport suburb. But it was the registration of the pickup truck police found outside that sent a wave of fear and revulsion throughout the deep South. The truck belonged to Glen Rogers, the charming, blond construction worker who police said boarded a bus from Los Angeles on Sept.

When the "Sons of Anarchy" motorcycle club swerves around the mangled debris of a car crash, then wheels over a dismembered chain-link fence as its members do in the Season 3 opener of the hit FX show Tuesday, it isn't the derring-do of stuntmen. The faces of "Jax," "Opie" and the rest of Sons' motley cast are all clearly visible as they bully their way through the streets on mix-and-match Harley-Davidsons ridden by the actors themselves. Not bad for a bunch of guys who barely knew how to ride two years ago. Charlie Hunnam, who plays the pretty-faced bad boy Jax, had done only "a tiny bit of riding," he said.
