An early-morning stabbing sends a local woman to the hospital with moderate  wounds following an altercation at an apartment complex in North Shreveport.  On April 6, 2012, at 1:05 a.m., Shreveport Police responded to Willis-Knighton hospital's emergency room relative to a woman who had been stabbed. On officers arrival, they spoke with 20 year old Sh'courtney Hall of the 1700 block of Stewart Street in Shreveport.  It was learned that Hall had been cut multiple times while participating in a fight at the University Oaks Apartments in the 4700 block of Hilry Huckaby Drive.  During interviews with Hall, she was found to be uncooperative in providing details about the incident.  It was later learned that Hall, along with a group of approximately twelve to fourteen subjects armed with bats and guns, arrived at the University Oaks Apartments with intentions of fighting with 21 year old Ricquea George of the 4700 block of Hilry Huckaby.  George, who was at her residence at the time, was confronted by Hall and the other persons accompanying her.  A fight ensued in which Hall, initially struck George in the face with a closed fist. In what appears to be an effort to defend herself, George armed herself with a knife.  It was during the altercation, Hall received moderate cuts to her person. Following the altercation, Hall and the group accompanying her dispersed, with Hall being transported to the hospital by private auto.

Roughly one hour following the initial incident, a second group of at least two subjects believed to be known to Hall, returned to the apartment complex in a retaliatory manner, in search of George.  George, who was still at her residence notified authorities after the group began smashing windows out of a vehicle belonging to a family member.  The unidentified duo fled the scene prior to officers arrival.  Following further investigation by Detectives, and evidence recovered on the scene, it was learned that Hall appeared to be the aggressor in the incident, severing claims of self defense.  Following medical treatment, Hall was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on charges of simple battery.
