Bossier City, LA (KETK) — A man wanted in Longview for murder was captured at his Bossier City residence this afternoon by Bossier City law enforcement.
Members of the U.S. Marshal's Violent Offender Task Force with the assistance of Bossier City Police and Shreveport Police arrested Paul Anthony Mengel Jr., 27, at his home in the 1400 block of Gibson Drive at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
Mengel was previously wanted for the shooting death of a Longview man on July 7, 2013.
Upon learning Mengel's location from Longview Police, officers converged on his home.
At one point Mengel left the house and was ordered to surrender but he treated back inside.
Officers continued to order Mengel to give up but he refused.
Three women eventually exited the house but Mengel remained inside.
Bossier City Police K-9 was then deployed to assist with taking Mengel into custody.
As a result, Mengel sustained a dog bite to his back and was taken into custody without further incident.
Mengel was treated at a Louisiana hospital for the dog bite and was booked into Bossier City Jail as a fugitive following his release from the hospital.
