Man Accused of Shooting His Wife Captured in DeSoto Parish

gun firingA man believed to have shot his wife yesterday afternoon in west Shreveport has been caught in DeSoto Parish. The shooting happened at about 6:45 last evening in the 5800 block of St. Vincent Avenue. When officers arrived there, they found 42-year-old Tracey Brown suffering from two gunshot wounds, one to the chin and one to the arm. She told patrolmen her estranged husband, 46-year-old Ronnie Smith, started following her in a vehicle as she was driving on St. Vincent, when he suddenly pulled up beside her and started firing shots. Brown was taken to LSU Hospital with non-life-threatening wounds. Detecives positively identified Smith as the shooter, and got an arrest warrant charging him with one count of illegal use of a weapon from a moving vehicle. Smith, who apparently has relatives in the Mansfield area, was arrested by DeSoto Parish authorities last night. His bond is set at $250,000.
