Suspect Shot After Running from Shreveport Police

gun firingPolice were just checking to see if a stopped motorist needed help…now, they’re trying to figure out why he ran from them. Shreveport Police Sgt. Bill Goodin says just before midnight, a patrol officer saw what appeared to be a disabled vehicle stopped in traffic near the intersection of Linwood and Harrison. But when police approached him, he took off on foot. The officer ran after him, but wasn’t able to catch him. Other officers arriving to help heard gunshots ring out nearby, and located 37-year-old Lindburgh Williams behind a home in the 500 block of Harrison Street, suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. He was taken to LSU Hospital for treatment. Detectives say what they’ve learned is that the homeowner heard what sounded like someone trying to break into a window at the back of the house, so he armed himself and went to investigate. When he saw Williams trying to get in through the window, he fired two shots, hitting Williams once. Williams is charged with one count each of attempted unauthorized entry and criminal trespass. The homeowner hasn’t been charged, but the case will be turned over to the Caddo District Attorney’s Office for review.
