Arrest Made in Fatal Shooting of Trucker on I-20 in Louisiana

A suspect has been apprehended in connection with the fatal shooting of a truck driver on Interstate 20 in Caddo Parish, Louisiana last month. The arrest occurred in Mississippi, where 34-year-old Amanvir Singh of Flowood, near Jackson, was taken into custody on a Wednesday night. He faces a second-degree murder charge issued by the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The victim, identified as 36-year-old Gurprett Singh Judge from Yuba City, California, was allegedly known to Singh. Contrary to initial beliefs that the incident was a case of road rage, investigators from the Caddo Sheriff’s Office have clarified that the two men had a prior acquaintance. The motive behind the April 23 shooting remains under investigation.

Evidence includes dash cam footage from nearby trucks, capturing a confrontation between Judge and Singh. Reports indicate that after a physical altercation, where Judge reportedly swung at Singh with what seemed to be a flashlight, Singh retrieved a firearm and shot Judge multiple times as he attempted to flee. Singh then fled the scene in a dark-colored SUV towards Texas.

Singh was subsequently located and arrested without incident in his vehicle by a combination of Caddo sheriff’s detectives and local law enforcement as part of a fugitive task force. He is currently awaiting extradition to Caddo Parish, positioned on the northwest edge of Louisiana near the Texas state line.
