Shreveport police are investigating a late-evening shooting that left a man dead.

Just after 9 p.m. Friday, patrol officers were called to La Tierra Villa Apartments in the 6100 block of Tierra Drive, where they learned a man had been shot. The victim, identified only as a 45-year-old male, was shot once in the chest. He was taken to University Health, where he was pronounced dead.

Based on the evidence Violent Crimes detectives gathered at the scene, it appears the victim was sitting outside an apartment building, when he was the victim of a robbery.

Authorities are working to recover surveillance video from the complex's security system in the hopes of finding the person or people responsible for this crime. Anyone with information that can help detectives is asked to call Shreveport-Caddo Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
