An on-duty Shreveport Police officer assigned to a federal task force charged with apprehending violent criminals was involved in a shooting in Natchitoches Parish.

 

Just after 5:00 p.m. on August 12, 2014 members of the United Stated Marshal’s Violent Offender Task Force were in Natchitoches Parish working to track down a man wanted in connection with a shooting in Texas earlier today. Authorities located the offender and while attempting to take him into custody a Shreveport Police officer fired at least one shot from his department issued service weapon striking the suspect in the lower body. The suspect was subsequently transported to a local hospital for treatment.

 

The officer, whose name is not being released at this hour as per departmental policy, has been placed on routine paid administrative leave by Chief of Police Willie Shaw
