A man tried to carjack a Louisiana State trooper and two members of the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force traveling in an unmarked state police unit in downtown Shreveport.
Trooper Matt Harris, spokesman for Louisiana State Police Troop G, says 25-year-old Joshua Carter, of Princeton, approached the car Wednesday about 4:30 p.m. while it was stopped at a traffic light. Harris says Carter began pulling on the car's door handle and demanding that it be opened. When he realized the vehicle was occupied by police officers, he fled.
