Shreveport police and Caddo SWAT have been on the scene of a standoff at the intersection of San Jacinto and West College where an armed suspect reportedly is inside a home in the area.

The suspect was engaged in an altercation with someone inside another residence on West College earlier on Sunday. The suspect, who was armed, then left that home and went into the residence where police believe he is either or was inside on the same block.

Police were called when the armed suspect left the first home, and were at the scene when the gunshot was fired from inside or around the second home.

It is unknown at this time if the suspect left the second home or is still inside, nor do police know if the suspect is alone. Police believe the man may have mental health issues.

Officers have tried to negotiate with the man. So far, there have been no reports of injuries.
