Shreveport Police Dog Corners Shooting Supect [Photo]
Shreveport police are investigating a shooting that happened this morning before noon in the 3800 block of Doris. Officers arrived on the scene to find a man suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper body.
Sgt. Bill Goodin told KEEL News, police using a canine unit caught a suspect in the shooting just moments later. The men apparently knew each other and an on-going feud ended in a hail of gunfire, with one man shooting another multiple times.
“We believe that the victim and a known suspect were involved in some type of ongoing argument and this morning they contacted each other there on Doris, at which point the suspect produced a handgun and fired multiple shots at the victim, striking him at least that one time…”
“While he was alert and lucid and able to talk with detectives he was transported to LSU Health… by Shreveport Fire Department by what I am told, are life-threatening injuries, ” Goodin said.
The suspect fled the scene and was nabbed by police armed with canines a few blocks away on Morning Side and Valley Ridge.
A patrolman stopped a man fitting the suspect’s description. The suspect was taken into custody after a dog cornered the alleged shooter, who was hiding under a vacant house on Morning Side. The investigation continues and no names have been released.
