The Caddo Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a Shreveport man.

Detectives say 43-year-old Christopher Nichols of North Market Street was visiting a friend last night on Ferry Lake Road in Oil City, when he suffered a gunshot wound to the neck.

After the shooting, Nichols' friend ran to a neighbor's house, and the neighbor called 911. The shooting was reported just after 10 p.m.

Nichols was taken to North Caddo Hospital in Vivian, where he was pronounced dead. There's no word yet on who shot Nichols. No suspects have been named so far.
