Shreveport Police Investigating Pair of Overnight Shootings

gun firingPolice detectives are investigating two apparently unrelated overnight shootings that left as many victims nursing non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

At approximately 8:03 p.m. on March 6, 2012, Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to a home in the 4000 block of Miles Street relative to a shooting. Upon arrival patrolmen discovered 42 year old James Price III suffering from a single gunshot wound to the right leg. Price told authorities he had been hanging out and drinking with some men he did not know when he heard several shots and realized he had been struck by gunfire. The victim, who was transported to LSUHSC by the Shreveport Fire Department, told detectives he did not see the shooter.

About thirty minutes later, officers responded to an apartment home in the 2900 block of Peach Street relative to a shooting. Upon arrival there, police found 28 year old Charles Jackson suffering from a gunshot wound to the right elbow. Jackson reported that several men loitering near the apartment complex there began fighting when at least one of the subjects produced a handgun and began firing shots, striking him in the arm. Jackson was transported to LSUHSC by the Shreveport Fire Department.

Investigators are working at this hour to determine who is responsible for these crimes. Anyone with any information regarding these incidents is urged to call Shreveport Police detectives at 318-673-6955 or Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
